Join us at REIFF headquarters (Maiden Alley Cinema) for an amazing parntership with the Paducah Visitors Bureau for the opening night of our 14th annual event.  We are highlighting a special showcase of films from across the UNESCO Creative Cities Network!

In celebration of the fifth anniversary of Paducah's designation as a Creative City, we will feature a special block of seven short films curated by Bradford, United Kingdom (Film) in the spirit of Bradford's Small World Film Festival. 

This event is FREE and a GREAT opportunity to come by and pick up a program and make your weekend film festival schedule.

Building on the mission of Maiden Alley Cinema, which is to create cross-cultural awareness, we are excited to showcase independent short films from around the world including Santos, Brazil, Rome, Italy and Nagoya, Japan.
