The Rome International Film Festival (RIFF) is beginning a new student-focused academy that will provide kids and young adults throughout the Northwest Georgia area the opportunity to learn more about the film industry from experts such as directors, actors, set designers, film crew members and more.

Through a grant awarded to RIFF by the Rome Area Council for the Arts (RACA), the film festival will host the RIFF Academy comprised of student-only workshops and screenings for RIFF Student Scholars on Wednesday, November 6th - Friday, November 8th.

RIFF Student Scholars may also attend the more advanced workshops on Friday and Saturday geared toward festival attendees.

To attend, schools or students may purchase a student pass for the RIFF Academy which will also provide students access to all workshops and screenings during the entire festival.

Additionally, students will have the opportunity to compete in the first RIFF Student Film Contest.

We are excited about the new opportunities RIFF is being able to provide for the students in our region. Please visit the links below to learn more about these great career exploration activities and events or contact us at if you have any questions.
