The 8th Annual Rainier Independent Film Festival is May 9th, 10th and 11th 2014! We will be taking Earlybird submissions in just a matter of days! The submission fee is only $25 - that is incredibly low for a chance to be part of RIFF. Don't miss your chance. Many filmmakers in attendance last year stated "... RIFF is the coolest secret that will not be a secret much longer".

In addition to our regular wide range of films we will screen, we are also seeking films related to the topic of GMO's. This category will have submission fees waived. If you have a film you think may fit into this category please email info@rainierfilmfest.com for a submission fee waiver.

Stay tuned!

 

ABOUT RIFF
The Rainier Independent Film Festival is in its 8th season and is still dedicated to providing Independent Filmmakers venues to have their films screened in the tranquil area surrounding Mount Rainier.

Mixing films, workshops and the laid-back setting of the area, this festival is set apart in the fact that it is a great opportunity to meet and mingle with film industry people outside of the hustle and bustle typically associated with the business.

Located in the shadow of Mount Rainier, the Ashford Valley provides the perfect setting for this festival. Our screening venues range from an authentic circular Yurt, an elementary school built in the 1920's with capacity of 400, to an intimate setting in the prestigious Nisqually Lodge. All projection is shown in the latest in digital technology.

Because of the unique location and our understanding that limited funds (if any!) are available to Independent Filmmakers, RIFF will make every effort to find complimentary lodging for the selected filmmakers in attendance.

All the Best,
Win Whittaker, RIFF Festival Director
