Rainier Independent Film Festival (RIFF) is a cinematic journey set in the transformative landscape of Mt. Rainier’s forested community, about 80 miles southeast of Seattle. Mixing films, workshops and the laid-back setting of the area, this festival is a great opportunity to meet and mingle with independent filmmakers and film industry people outside of the hustle and bustle typically associated with the business. Usually held the same weekend as the opening of the Seattle International Film Festival. Tickets: Single screening $5. Opening night $15. Festival passes $15-$35 include screenings, workshops, and more. More info: http://rainier.film/.
