RIFF4future

RIFF4future brings together young talents from the Nordic region for a three-day workshop to reflect on opportunities for young filmmakers in the era of New Media and Global warming. Using filmmaking, new media, and storytelling the talents will learn to develop their voices in regards to SDG’s awareness. 

The project aims to influence young filmmakers to have a say in the current situation of their countries and societies, where sustainability is their main focus. 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 important in all courses and activities, where we emphasize that everyone has a voice and the opportunity to be heard.

RIFF4future 2020

The course was successfully held in 2020, at the Nordic House. Participators in 2020 were very content and satisfied with the workshop, the networking and the opportunity to build strong relationships with peers and industry professionals. Many great international mentors gave lessons during the workshop, such as Mohamed Jabaly, a Palestinian filmmaker and artist from Gaza, Djamal Mohamed, a French filmmaker, Hilke Rönfeldt, writer and director, and Inuk, an acclaimed shortfilm producer and director. In addition to the international lecturers, Icelandic film professionals such as Ágústa M. Jóhannsdóttir, editor, Birta Rán Björgvinsdóttir, editor, and Ólöf Birna Torfadóttir, film director, held lectures during the workshop.
