JRFF 16, Apr. 12-19


The 16th annual James River Film Festival starts on Sunday, April 12 and runs through Sunday, April 19. What is the JRFF?

The James River Film Festival is a celebration of independent film, video and animation. Each April the festival brings nationally and internationally-known independent filmmakers to Richmond to screen and discuss their work.

Held annually since 1994, the festival has staged more than 270 workshops, screenings, and seminars. In addition, the program includes retrospectives; film performances with live, original music; and a juried competition of short films. JRFF awards up to $2,000 in cash and prizes – another way RMIC supports and stimulates independent filmmaking.
