RINFF


The Rain International Nature Film Festival aims to bring together ecologically aware filmmakers from around the world in order to showcase their works, facilitating an authentic platform for raising environmental awareness. The first Rain International Nature Film Festival was held from 25th to 27th of January, 2019 at Munnar, Kerala. The second Rain International Nature Film Festival was held from the 24th to 26th of January, 2020 at Kumarakam, Near Bird Sanctuary, Kerala. Delegates from all over the world participated in the event which showcased the best films that are associated with nature. The last year, Due to the covid-19 outbreak, RINFF had no choice but forced to shift into a digital platform. Hence the 3rd edition of RINFF was entirely held at a virtual platform on 2021, January 29, 30 and 31. After the grand success of three editions, RINFF is coming up with its 4th edition which will be held at CMS College, Kottayam on 11th and 12th March 2022. The Film festival is hosted by Birds Club International and Jayaraj Foundation.
