The 16th River Film Festival is an international short film festival that will be held in Padova (Italy) from the 1st to the 12th June 2022.
The Festival is organized by the Cultural Association Researching Movies and it is sponsored by the Padua City Council - Cultural Office and the University of Padua. Padua has now entered the UNESCO World Heritage List thanks to Giotto's Scrovegni Chapel and Padua's fourteenth-century fresco cycles so it is a special Art town which attracts many tourists and creative people from all over the world!
The festival is totally free entrance.
The films selected will once again be shown on the floating screen in the middle of the 16th-century fluvial port used for trade between Padua and Venice at the city gate of Porta Portello. This enchanting setting is just one of the many features that attract people to RiFF year after year! During the 11 days of the Festival, all the directors with their crew members will be able to show their works and talk to the audience with a special Q&A after the screening.
On the Final Ceremony River Film festival programmers and judges will award the winners on a boat from the Festival setting in Padua towards Venice with special guests!
