Event Description

“The pathos of the child is that it imitates the process of life as it beholds life being lived.” _Harold Clurman.
RIFF’s mission is to make the world a more compassionate place through the sharing of stories through cinema. Now in our 7th year, we continue that mission with THE BEST OF RIFF SHORTS FEST - Are The Kids All Right? Funded by a grant from CT Humanities and presented with support from The Ridgefield Playhouse, this 103 minute screening features 9 short films celebrating youth culture and 7 years of Ridgefield Independent Film Festival. Following the screenings will be a panel discussion moderated by Lisa Cambridge-Mitchell, featuring many of the filmmakers along with film critic, Joe Meyers on the history and language of youth in cinema, and a presentation of our Emerging Filmmaker Award to Ridgefield resident Nicholas Burns for his film, “Nothing Is Going to Change”. A reception will be held immediately following in the Playhouse Lobby with gourmet hot dogs by Chéz Lenard and Beer provided by Nod Hill Brewery.
