Da quest’anno il RIFF rende omaggio ai suoi spettatori introducendo una grande novità: il voto del pubblico.
A partire da questa edizione, infatti, il pubblico, destinatario per eccellenza nonché pilastro essenziale del cinema, si farà giudice delle opere in concorso.
Gli spettatori saranno chiamati direttamente ad esprimere il proprio giudizio su un’apposita scheda cartacea consegnata all’inizio del film.
La votazione interesserà la sezione dei documentari in concorso, italiani e stranieri, da sempre fiore all’occhiello del Festival.
L’iniziativa mira a rendere l’esperienza in sala più interattiva e coinvolgente e consente agli autori di ricevere un feedback diretto e immediato.
