We’re going OFF. But the vibes are on.

RIFF OFF is the floating festival happening during and around Riviera International Film Festival.

Every festival has this formula. Could we not create one? Nah. Could we have done it like everyone else? No, of course not. Join RIFF OFF and find it out yourself. Explore a whirlwind of events where we blur the lines between cinema and other arts. Like workshops where calligraphy and watercolor painting meet the seventh art, a panel on sustainable food, an evening dedicated to the best international audiovisual commercials of recent times, an exclusive review dedicated to one of the masters of the history of Italian cinema, and much more.
