White River Indie Film Festival (WRIF) returns White River Junction, VT with our 18th annual film festival of new global and local cinema, filmmaker talkbacks, workshops and parties at JAM and the Briggs Opera House. You won't want to miss the SECRET SCREENING Thursday 3/23 with a brave filmmaker flying in to share her experiences making a transgressive film that's challenging the industry. Grab a bite and congratulate our Emerging Filmmaker Winners at JAM before the film and stick around for the filmmaker talkback.
Come back Friday night 3/24 and support WRIF at our official opening Gala Party at JAM 5-6:30pm with Route 5 Jive and Fulla Flava Jamaican Jerk, followed by NO BEARS, Iranian film master Jafar Panahi's latest and possibly greatest work, followed by THE BUTTERFLY QUEEN with VT filmmaker Liam O'Connor-Generaux in attendance. To cap off the night, stick around for the GUSH immersive cinema after-party at JAM, viewed the way Indigenous filmmaker Fox Macy wanted her first feature film, fresh from Sundance, to be seen.
AND THAT'S JUST THE BEGINNING! Read all about it and stick around for a weekend that will make you fall back in love with movies and their power to inspire, awaken, and catalyze change.
