RIFF creates a spectacular screening environment by showcasing films at outdoor venues at beachfront resorts. Every evening, a dinner/food event is created by some of the finest chefs in the area. See entertaining films while enjoying the great outdoors.
Daytime screenings are hosted at the Beachfront Villa Cofresi, where you can see films, or enjoy the beach, bar, restaurant and pool.
Rincón is a 2 hour drive from San Juan and has become a Carribbean hideaway vacation destination, known for surfing, beaches, and a Laissez-faire attitude. Filmmakers from around the world travel into Rincón every year for the festival. Filmmakers from Japan, China, Spain, Canada, Europe and US states from California to New York, have attended and shown their work, as well as up and coming directors and filmmakers from Puerto Rico. A filmmaker from Germany actually proposed and married in Rincón before leaving the festival in 2009.
