Holland Is in Focus at RIFF 2021

Screening Benedetta, the opening film at Cannes, and a selection of newly released films that are making a real splash in film festivals this year

Holland will be in focus at Reykjavík International Film Festival - RIFF that will open its doors to the 18th edition with a bang on the 30th of September next month.

A great diverse selection of Dutch films will be screened at the festival and prominent guests will be attending from the Dutch film industry both in relation to our special Dutch Day on the 3rd of October and to give talks at RIFF industry days as well as to introduce their films that will be shown at the festival and RIFF – Home on riff.is.

Our team is almost finished securing an amazing lineup for the festival and the rest of the program will be announced in the following days and weeks. It is now possible to secure tickets and festival passes on our website riff.is.

At Dutch Focus we’ll be screening many great shorts as well as series from The One Minute Program in co-operation with the The One Minute Foundation around the city. An outstanding selection of full-length features will be shown in Bíó Paradís and virtually at RIFF Home. We are proud to announce that Paul Verhoeven’s Benedetta will be one of our Dutch titles. The film created quite a stir as the opening film at Cannes film festival this summer for its provocative sex scenes.
