RIFF’s latest affiliate, the RIFF Arts Institute opens in the Fall of 2018. RAI’s focus is on year-round artist and content development, film and music fellowships funds, production, and offering year-round artist in residency programs for film, music, and writing.

RAI will support a wide variety of educational programming for adults and youth in an effort to develop and support the country’s next generation of emerging artists. Additionally, in a combined effort between RIFF and RAI, the Institute’s programming places an extensive focus on being a platform for collaboration and growing the film and music industries across the Commonwealth of Virginia.

For more information on RAI’s upcoming programs, contact info@richmondfilmestival.com.

Join us this April in RVA as we honor some of the industry's finest talent.
