Today, RÚV English looks ahead to RIFF, a major festival of international film coming to the capital at the end of September.

The Reykjavík International Film Festival - riff.is - is one of the biggest and most diverse cultural events in Iceland.

For eleven days every autumn since 2004, Icelandic locals and tourists alike are able to go to the cinema and enjoy the best and freshest of international film making. The festival shows a wide range of dramas and non-fiction films from over 40 countries.

Guests can also meet and chat with directors about their works, attend panels and workshops, concerts and exhibitions, and even watch interesting films under even more interesting conditions, for instance in a swimming pool or in the filmmaker's home.

The festival highlights independent film making from all over the world with the emphasis on up-and-coming filmmakers, with the main prize - the Golden Puffin, being awarded only to first or second-time directors.

Darren went to meet Ragnar Jón Hrólfsson from the festival, to find out more.

You can also listen to this and all other RÚV English programming on Spotify, Apple, or any other podcast place, and subscribe too, to never miss a show.
