THAT’S A WRAP ON THE 15TH ANNUAL ROME INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL! 

Written by Matt Davis on November 5, 2018. Posted in News/Weather

And that’s a wrap on the 15th annual Rome International Film Festival!  The four-day festival drew to a close on Sunday.  The weekend was chock full of  screenings, workshops and social events which drew visitors from around the world to this community (including a few with celebrity status).

Film and television actor Judge Reinhold was the headline guest for 2018. He is most recognized for his roles in the “Beverly Hills Cop” movies and from “Fast Times at Ridgemont High”.  Younger viewers may remember him from “The Santa Clause”.  He has also been featured in a TBS comedy series “The Detour”.

Reinhold stated that he found RIFF to be ‘refreshing’ as it is more ‘relational’ than ‘transactional’ (as some film festivals are).

The Rome festival featured screenings of “Fast Times” as well as “Over Her Dead Body”, a 1990 dark comedy starring Reinhold that was not previously released in theatres.  Reinhold entertained questions (and got a few laughs) in Q&A sessions that were held after each.  He offered a behind the scenes look at “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” prior to the screening of the 1982 film on Saturday night at Rome City Auditorium.
