Jonas Mekas is RIFF’s Guest of Honour in 2018

RIFF is proud to present this years guest of honour: Jonas Mekas.
Known as the godfather of American avant-garde cinema, Jonas worked closely with legendary artists such as Andy Warhol, Salvador Dalí & John Lennon.

Jonas was a part of the incredibly influential New York art scene in the 1970’s and frequented Studio 54. He is known for his intimate diary films, a form he invented, and many iconic people have made appearances in his films, including Jackie Kennedy, Allen Ginsberg, Marina Abramovic and Björk.

We are incredibly excited to show his work at the festival and to welcome Jonas to RIFF 2018.
