RIFF becomes Reykjavík´s city festival till 2022
Reykjavík International Film Festival, RIFF, became honored as Reykjavík´s city Festival from 2020 – 2022 and will therefore receive 10 million Icelandic Crowns each year it holds the honor. This was agreed upon on the 25thmeeting of Cultural-, Sport- and Leisure Committee which was held on 21stof October 2019.
In analysis to support that decision a special committee wrote:
Reykjavík International Film Festival or RIFF has made a strong name for itself both in Iceland and on the international scene and has managed to create important connections with key players in the international film industry which can be seen best by the quality of the films that are screened and the high level of foreign guests that come to the festival.
