Director’s Statement | 2020
“After two wonderful editions of the RIFF, we are now looking to raise the bar by extending the RIFF acronym from ‘REAKTOR Indian Film Festival’ to ‘REAKTOR International Film Festival’, broadening our catchment area to the world as a whole. As a major player in the film world, India will of course continue to play a pivotal role in the Film Festival, albeit now embedded in world cinema. Particular emphasis will be on young independent productions. Our selection of films will remain entirely free from any pressure from distributors or producers and guided solely by what Konstantin Sergeievich Stanislavski might have referred to as: ‘Верю’ “Bernhard Kammel, director of REAKTOR & RIFF
