Paducah River’s Edge International Film Festival puts Creative Cities on Screens
From 1st to 4 November, in celebration of the fifth anniversary of Paducah’s designation as a UNESCO Creative City, the 14th annual River's Edge International Film Festival (REIFF) will spotlight the UNESCO Creative Cities Network. Building upon the festival’s mission to showcase quality independent film from around the world, REIFF features a special block of seven short films curated by Bradford, United Kingdom, in the spirit of the Small World Film Festival, that represent the diversity and cultural characteristics of the UCCN.
“We're delighted that films from not only Bradford, but other UNESCO Creative Cities are featured in Paducah's festival” says David Wilson, director of Bradford UNESCO City of Film. “Working together as a Creative Cities Network, we can ensure that our filmmakers can profile both their talent and the issues that matter to them on a bigger platform.”
The REIFF is a 4-day festival that celebrates the art of the cinema and craft that is filmmaking in Historic Downtown Paducah.
