Due to the current COVID/Delta environment, it is with regret that the film festival team has decided to cancel the RAFFA Red Carpet event scheduled to be held at the Town Hall on Saturday the 25th September. The film festival team will be presenting a film to announce the awards via social media – watch our website and on Facebook – for more updates.
If we are at Alert Level 2, the RAFFA entry films will be screened at the Old School on Monday 20th September, Tuesday 21st September and Sunday 26th September at 4:30pm and 6:30pm, following the guidelines as set out by the Government. Entry is by koha.
