Other sidebar sections include the newly established Cinema Beats as well as Documentaries, Open Seas, Dutch Focus and, for international guests, the particularly appetising Icelandic Panorama featuring eight fresh Icelandic titles.

Two recently departed industry professionals, Icelandic director Árni Ólafur Ásgeirsson, and Greek curator and film critic Dimitris Eipides, who in addition to programming for the Thessaloniki, Toronto and Montreal Film Festivals served as the programme director at RIFF, will have tribute programmes dedicated to them.

RIFF's famed special events in unusual locations continue this year, with highlights including screenings of Jim Henson's Labyrinth in the Raufarhólshellir cave and Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou in a swimming-pool cinema. Plus, Hildur Guðnadóttir’s Academy Award-winning score for Joker will be performed by SinfoniaNord and conducted by the composer’s father, Guðni Franzson, set to a projection of the film.
