Our RIYFF is a unique film event and very important platform for young people as film and video is the strongest medium nowadays. The Festival showcases films made by young filmmakers 14-26 years of age from the entire world. The “Ringerike International Youth Film Festival” is an important platform for new talent and cinematic creativity. The Festival accepts a broad selection of work made by young filmmakers in the categories: short fiction, documentaries, animation and music video. Selected filmmakers will receive festival passes to attend the festival and the opportunity to participate in the directors`Q&A after their screening.

In 2017 we screened 74 films from 40 countries!

Many though surprised as very talented newcomers. We proudly presented several World and European Premieres too.
