Named one of the top 25 film festivals worth the submission fee by Movie Maker Magazine in 2011, Rome International Film Festival (RIFF) offers filmmakers and festival goers alike a unique small-town atmosphere with the famous Southern charm.

A walking festival with great mingling opportunities between filmmakers and festival attendees. Filmmaking workshops, opening gala, filmmaker exclusive party, and student competitions are just a few of the reasons why directors and festival goers year after year continue to choose RIFF as their festival of choice.

Nov. 11 – 12, we are welcoming special guest Burt Reynolds to celebrate the 40th anniversary of "Smokey and the Bandit" as well as a screening of his new movie "Dog Years."
