RAFF - Rab Film Festival

Rab, 22.08.2020.

The second edition of investigative film festival - Rab Film Festival - RAFF 2020 will take place on Saturday, 22 August, starting at 20:00, in the bay in front of the Valamar Padova Hotel in the town of Rab.

This year has been the most challenging for many film festivals so far. Some had to be postponed to some other time of the year, some have become partially and/or completely online, and some adapted their programmes to the current situation caused by the COVID-19 virus pandemic.

The Rab Film Festival ended its last year’s edition with a screening and announcement of the winners in a sea bay, where the audience watched movies from boats, locally called kaich. An entirely different cinema experience! This year it was decided, in accordance with the recommended epidemiological measures, to offer the festival audience this unforgettable ‘kaich cinema’ experience! A special sea cinema experience – RAFF SEAPLEX KAICH – is a step forward in the tourist and cinema offer of the town of Rab, the Adriatic coast, and the entire Croatia.

With the great help of sponsors and patrons, the organisers offer the audience to watch movies for free!

From the boats, we will watch two films, a feature and a documentary one: "Mater" and "Current Sea."
