RAHWAY INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL 2017
This year, the 5th Annual Rahway International Film Festival, a Big Dreams & Silver Screens production, called a new venue home, the James Ward Mansion in Westfield, NJ on September 22-24, 2017! Who doesn't want to celebrate in a mansion?
Our 5th year brings more exciting new progress for RIFF as we are now officially a program of Big Dreams & Silver Screens Inc., a Non-Profit Corporation, 501(c)3 in the state of New Jersey! You will start to see that name a lot more often, but don't worry - we are still run by the very same dedicated team! Click here to read our Director's Statement regarding the move and rebrand.
This year, we screened 7 feature films and 36 short films from across the world, including as local as New Jersey to as far as Estonia and India. See below for the festival schedule and film lineup.
As a women-led film festival in a primarily male-dominated film industry, we are dedicated to showcasing an equal ratio of films by female and male filmmakers in a leading role (Director/Writer/Producer), in keeping with our mission of presenting films that promote equality, awareness, & open-mindedness.
