Calling all northeast region filmmakers!

WRIF (White River Indie Films) is now accepting submissions to the Emerging Filmmakers segment of our 2024 in-person festival, hosted at the Briggs Opera House in White River Junction, VT, February 15-18, 2024 in collaboration with JAM — Junction Arts & Media.

In the spirit of fostering connections between local, emerging filmmakers and more established filmmakers, selected shorts will be screened before feature films playing at WRIF. Selected filmmakers will be notified of screening date/time prior to the festival in hopes that you can attend! Emerging filmmakers will also be awarded with cash prizes.

Emerging Filmmaker Hannah Polinski speaks about her film 'perrenials' on a panel at WRIF.
