Presented by Downtown New Haven Inc via a small sub-committee, we are pleased to be the home of Missouri's ONLY short film festival. RSF was created by Patti Ryan. In 2015, she passed the torch to Tara Steffens who brought the festival to the historic Walt Theatre. The Riverside Short Film Festival furthers the art and craft of film-making by supporting, promoting and recognizing the art of short film and its artists. The goal of the festival is to amplify our collective and individual awareness by bringing the world to New Haven, Mo, and beyond, to celebrate fresh voices and differing global perspectives with the hope that these programs will enlighten audiences, provide exposure for filmmakers, preserve the art of the short film and present inspired entertainment for all. This weekend long festival features a variety of activities for all ages.
