Rosetown Film Festival (RFF) is a publicly attended film festival held each March in Rosetown, Roseland, Brunant. The festival begins on September 8, lasting for eleven days.

The 48th Rosetown Film Festival was held at the Habermas Theater between September 8 and September 18, 2012, though The Arts Center Rosetown will be hosting the event from 2013 on.

History[edit | edit source]

The RFF was founded in 1964, by John Barker (1906-1982), a prominent director and actor of early Brunanter cinema. Barker was also the Festival's first president, from its foundation until 1970.

The last few years, total attendance at RFF has exceeded 10,000, with 12,300 public and industry admissions in 2013. Beginning in 2014 a select few foreign films, mostly from wikinations will be shown.
