THE REEL INDEPENDENT FILM EXTRAVAGANZA

“THE PEOPLE'S FESTIVAL”

RIFE IS AN EVENT CREATED BY FILMMAKERS FOR FILMMAKERS.  THE EVENT STRIVES TO PRESENT THE BEST OF TRULY INDEPENDENT FILMS IN A VARIETY OF CATEGORIES FROM AROUND THE WORLD IN AN ENVIRONMENT DESIGNED TO PROVIDE UNIQUE OPPORTUNITIES FOR PARTICIPANTS TO INTERACT WITH ONE ANOTHER AND ENJOY THE WORLD OF CINEMA.

FOR OUR 5TH YEAR, RIFE IS SPEARHEADING THE WASHINGTON METROPOLITAN (DMV) FILM COMMUNITY MOVEMENT. WE ARE WORKING TO BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN LOCAL FILMMAKERS, THE FILM LOVER AND THE DOMESTIC/INTERNATIONAL INDEPENDENT FILM SCENE. RIFE IS FOCUSING ON SHOWCASING A HIGHER PERCENTAGE OF INDEPENDENTLY PRODUCED LOCAL FILMS TO SCREEN ALONGSIDE OUR METICULOUSLY CURATED DOMESTIC AND INTERNATIONAL OFFERINGS. PARTNERING WITH LOCAL FILM COMMUNITY ADVOCATES SUCH AS MERIDIAN HILL PICTURES, INDIECAPITOL, PICTURE LOCK SHOW, DMV PRODUCER'S ASSOCIATION AND DCFILMDOM.COM, RIFE IS STEADILY WORKING TOWARDS CEMENTING OUR SELF PROCLAIMED GOAL OF BECOMING THE "PEOPLE'S FESTIVAL" BY SUPPORTING, SPOTLIGHTING AND PROMOTING THE WASHINGTON METROPOLITAN (DMV) FILM COMMUNITY WHILE CONTINUING TO BRING THE BEST POSSIBLE DOMESTIC AND INTERNATIONAL FARE TO OUR FESTIVAL.
 

THIS WEEK LONG FESTIVAL WILL BE A CELEBRATION OF EMERGING FILMMAKERS AND INDEPENDENT FILMS. HIGHLIGHTING THE TALENTS OF LOCAL, NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL FILMMAKERS, RIFE OFFERS A DIVERSE PROGRAM AND FOSTERS PUBLIC AWARENESS OF INDEPENDENT CINEMA AS A CULTURAL AND EDUCATIONAL ASSET.  RIFE AIMS TO PROMOTE AND SUPPORT THE ARTISTRY OF INDEPENDENT CINEMA FROM EMERGING FILMMAKERS OF ALL GENRES. THE FESTIVAL IS SEEKING FILMS THAT ARE ENGAGING AND INNOVATIVE, REFLECTING A DISTINCTIVE VISION AND INDEPENDENT SPIRIT.
