The dates for the 2017 Rochester International Film Festival have been set - mark your calendars for April 21 - 27, 2017. Looking forward to seeing you there!
Thank You for another successful Film Festival!
Thank you for making our 21st Annual Rochester Film Festival a success. We would like to thank all of our sponsors, partners and everyone who came out to see the films.
Our festival would not be possible without the participation of the Film Society of Minneapolis St. Paul and by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts & cultural heritage fund.
Next iFilm: Neither Heaven Nor Earth Jan 11th, 6:00pm at Rochester Public Library
DIRECTED BY CLÉMENT COGITORE FRANCE / 2015 / FRENCH WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES
French Army Captain Antares Bonassieu and his squad are assigned to monitor a remote valley of Wakhan, Afghanistan on the border of Pakistan. Negotiating control of the region between local shepherds and possible Taliban sympathizers grows more and more tenuous for them as men from all sides start mysteriously disappearing. Unable to explain this eerie phenomenon, the soldiers find themselves embroiled in an existential nightmare, desperate for their own safety.
