This was IYFFL 2015
Since the “Ringerike International Youth Film Festival” (RIYFF) emerges from the former IYFFL we like to review the success of the previous editions of the film festival:
The “International Youth Film Festival Langesund” (IYFFL) was launched in 2015 in the town of Langesund in Telemark where the festival producers and creators, Ivonne and Kurt Salo, lived by then. The 1st IYFFL was held 11-15th of August 2015 in the culture center of Langesund. It became right a way a great success among the filmmakers, guests and public. The 2nd edition was then held 7th-11th of June 2016 in the same location. It took the film festival to the next level and made the IYFFL well-known in Norway, the EU and worldwide.
Both film festivals set value on an excellent film program. In 2016 the IYFFL screened 73 films from 25 countries! There were documentaries, feature and animation films of 2 to 45 minutes length. They were exceptional and made by award-winning filmmakers 14-26 years of age. Many of the films had been screened at film festivals including the Festival de Cannes, British Film Institute Future Film Festival or Sundance Film Festival.
