RIFF is a small independent film festival and that is why we love it. While we can offer free accommodation to all members of our Student Jury, transportation and meals are not covered.
However, once in Sestri Levante you will not need to use any means of transport to move across the locations of RIFF. As for meals, you can get a decent meal for about a tenner, a panini for less, and an aperitivo in our famous Baia del Silenzio is just priceless 😉 You will have at your disposal a communal kitchen where you can prepare your meals.
Attend RIFF from 7-12 May 2019, and it is recommended for you to arrive on 6 May or early 7 May so that you have the chance to meet your fellow Student jurors
