Is March 15th 2009!
That's because the Festival itself runs from April 17th to April 26th, 2009! The Festival will be held at the Regal Cinemas, Riverside Plaza, in Riverside, California.
Today is March 6th, 2009 and the big event of the Day is the 'Watchmen' Film's Opening. Of course Tina and myself will be going later on in the day for that!
However, that is also a reminder to me that I should blog about another Film happening that is being held in SoCal next month.
No, I'm not blogging again about the the Cut! Film Festival which will be taking place the weekend of March 14-15, 2009 at the historic Aero Theatre, 1328 Montana Ave. at 14th Street, Santa Monica, California! (See here for all blog posts on that Festival.)
Today I'm blogging about The Riverside International Film Festival (RIFF), which is celebrating its' 7th Year!
I was sent a notice from the publicist as follows:
Calling all filmmakers! Submissions are now being accepted for the 7th Annual Riverside International Film Festival. The deadline for entries is March 15. Visit http://www.riversidefilmfest.org for more details. This exciting event begins April 17 with a dazzling opening night gala and goes through April 26 with a glitzy closing night gala. Screenings will be at the Regal Riverside Plaza Stadium Theaters at the Riverside Plaza. The address is 3535 Riverside Plaza Drive, Riverside, CA, 92506.
I took a look at what the previous year's entries were, and found one stop motion animated short film by Dustin Grella titled 'Glimpse'. A brief sample of that film is shown on the producer's web site at http://www.dustingrella.com for you to view. The photo below the Film Festival's logo in this blog post is a sample scene from that 'Glimpse' film. Of course this Film Festival is varied in the genres of films submitted for exhibition.
According to the publicist of the Festival and the web site, the RIFF "continues to grow in size, scope and stature as a prominent venue for top quality international cinema, showing films from around the world, including world premieres, features, shorts and documentaries".
Should you be in the film industry, you might want to check out RIFF's web site for entry details. Don't forget the deadline is nearing... March 15th, 2009!
As a Film viewer finding yourself in Southern California between the dates of April 17th - 26th, you might want to add this Film Festival to your calendar!
