Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
THE MISSION OF RIFF IS TO MAKE THE WORLD A MORE COMPASSIONATE PLACE THROUGH THE SHARING OF STORIES FROM AROUND THE GLOBE THROUGH CINEMA, AND TO GIVE COMFORT AND AID TO THE HARDWORKING FILMMAKER WHO SHARES THIS VISION.
Cinema is a medium that is easy to understand, it is the language of empathy. Without words - through gesture, body-language, laughter, music and vista - we can interpret much meaning. The visual language of cinema is one we humans have created and learned together.
riff2016 will bring the best new films we can find and, where possible, their makers from around the globe to Ridgefield Connecticut for thoughtful screenings in curated venues to a sophistocated and discerning audience.
In addition, RIFF will offer master classes in different aspects of film and filmmaking to Ridgfielders and visitors, as well as panel discussions and filmmaker events to unite filmmakers with their audience. It is our sincere hope that out of these gatherings many fruitful alliances will be formed to create opportunities for future films to be made and shared.
