RIFF4future

RIFF4future is a forum which brings together young talents from the Nordic region for a three-day workshop where they can learn about opportunities for young filmmakers in the era of new media and global warming. Using filmmaking, new media, and storytelling, the future filmmakers learn to develop their voices in a way that raises awareness of Sustainable Development Goals.

The project aims to influence young filmmakers to have a say in the current moment of their countries and societies and direct the spotlight at sustainability. Their films should aim to have an effect on others and promote their visions in the attempt to transform the world.

The seminar is one of RIFF’s diverse educational programs where film literacy and filmmaking play an important role. RIFF’s equality policy is pervasivein all courses and activities — we insist on the notion that everyone has a voice and the opportunity to be heard.

RIFF4future 2020

The course was successfully held in 2020 at the Reykjavík Nordic House. The networking and the opportunity to build strong relationships with peers and industry professionals were only some of the reasons why the 2020 edition participants expressed their delight and satisfaction with the workshop. Many great international mentors held lectures during the workshop, including Palestinian filmmaker and artist from Gaza, Mohamed Jabaly, French filmmaker Djamal Mohamed, writer and director Hilke Rönfeldt, and acclaimed short film producer and director Inuk. In addition to the international lecturers, Icelandic film professionals such as editors Ágústa M. Jóhannsdóttir and Birta Rán Björgvinsdóttir, and director Ólöf Birna Torfadóttir held lectures during the workshop.
