The Best, RIYFF 2017!

RIYFF is a unique film festival screening films made by young filmmakers 14-26 years of age from Norway and from all over the world. The film festival wants to support young film and tv newcomers. The “Ringerike International Youth Film Festival” is the 3rd edition of the former IYFFL film festival. The RIYFF will be held 7-11th of November in the city of Hønefoss.

This year more than 600 films were submitted from over 70 countries.  Now the decision is made  - we will screen 74 films from 40 countries that are selected for our international film competition! Most of the films are made by award-winning filmmakers and have been screened at other film festivals including Sundance, Festival de Cannes, Berlinale or British Film Institute Future Film Festival. Many though will surprise as very talented newcomers. We proudly present several World and European Premieres too.


Open to everybody!

The RIYFF is aimed for the film industry as well as for the broad public. Notice: the film screenings are open for everybody.

Our RIYFF is a film event and very important platform for young people as film and video is the strongest medium nowadays. We believe 14 to 26 years old film enthusiasts should have a place to express their voice and be heard as strong as the medium is. We also believe that some of you would like to optimize your skills and maybe be a professional filmmaker later on. Therefore we offer our different workshops held by well known filmmakers from the international TV and film industry. And most important build up your network around the world!
