Two Good Reasons For Visiting Iceland This Fall

There are two excting reasons for visiting Iceland this fall as Indiewire has found out.

The RIFF Talent Lab will take place between the 30th of September and the 4th of October and our Industry Days, operating from the 1st of October until the 4th

The Founding of “Friends of the Reykjavik International Film Festival.”

The goal is to found a broad group of people both locally and abroad that will act as guardians of the festival and support its development. Membership is open to everyone and there are no dues, but a registry of members will be kept.

Our Friends will receive special benefits at the festival, such as a 15% discount on passes and advance tickets for the most popular events.The Friends will hold an annual meeting where the activities of the festival will be presented and revised and its future direction planned.

Peter Wintonick

Our dear friend and colleague Peter Wintonick, documentary programmer at RIFF, has left this world far too early. We remember him with deep gratitude, warmth and respect. He was a unique personality. Full of wit, inspirational, helpful, a good mentor and an excellent programmer. We will keep his memory alive and all the good things he stood for. Our deepest condolences to his family in Canada and friends all over the world. Sail on dear Peter!
