Opening Night Film: Thursday, 7 PM – September 6th
Immediately following the film, its star, Danny Darst, will perform live a few of his favorite songs as a special treat just for RIFF. Between songs Mr. Darst and Mr. Altman will answer questions about a few of their favorite behind the scenes stories. Come join us immediately after the film for our Opening Night Gala at Swift & Finch, just half a block down Broad Street on the right.
Closing Night Film: Saturday, 7 PM – September 8th
Heathens and Thieves
A classic western—survival in the wide-open west on a bedrock of guns, blood, and greed. It’s a pressure cooker and a treasure hunt– though the treasure itself matters less than what its hunters are willing to give up to get it.
This year RIFF is in for a special treat! We are fortunate to be welcomed into the home of Wes Walraven and Brian Moore for this year’s Closing Night Gala at Historic Rose Hill Manor, located at 312 East 4th Avenue. Enjoy an elegant evening of delicious refreshments to close out this year’s festival.
