It kicks off on September 21st.
That was Co-Curator Elana Post.
Two feature-length films will be shown on the Friday night with two more shown on Saturday.
At 6:45 p.m. on Friday, the previously mentioned Kumiko: The Treasure Hunter will be playing.
A 9:20 p.m. they will be playing Supa Modo, a story of a terminally ill girl and her love for superheroes and what a community will do to show her joy in her final days.
Both Kumiko and Supa Modo, though they both sound serious, have strong comedic elements involved.
On Saturday morning at 10:30 a.m. they will be playing Family Friendly Shorts where anyone is welcome to attend free of charge.
At 11:45 a.m., the festival only full fledge drama Sami Blood will play.
This film talks about racism and growing up in a society that vilifies a particular culture and looks at the conflict of a person being asked to do one thing while at the same time realizing what they are being told about themselves and the culture is wrong.
At 2:45 p.m., I Am Not A Witch will play which examines the filmmaker revisiting her heritage in a fictional way.
At 6:45 pm the festival will close out with a series of Short Films.
On the Saturday there will also be the Norfolk Popcorn Party outside of the Strand.
The R2RFF Weekend Pass costs $50 per person and includes admission to all film blocks. Individual tickets for films cost $12.
