The the 2019 Ridgefield Independent Film Festival (RIFF) will be held Oct. 10 through 14. \u201cWe\u2019ve gotten a few hundred submissions,\u201d said Geoffrey Morris of the Economic and Community Development Commission. \u201cWe want to release the film names earlier this year, because last year it was like August and we didn\u2019t have enough time to market them properly \u2014 we want to start getting them out... in July.\u201d Morris said so far there are no major celebrity names featured in the list of film-makers. The state\u2019s Office of Film, TV, and Digital Media has shown interest in the event. \u201cThey were very supportive last year, they\u2019re probably going to give some more money this year [and] they\u2019re really engaged with our festival director.\u201d The festival will include events at the Playhouse, Keeler Tavern, the Library, the Theater Barn, and \u201cpossibly the Lounsbury house,\u201d Morris added.
