Alejandro Jodorowsky and Darren Aronofsky celebrated at RIFF!

We are very proud of presenting our honorary guests this year directors Alejandro Jodorowksy and Darren Aronofsky! Aronofsky is known for films like Noah, Black Swan and Requiem for a Dream. Aronofsky has won a lot of international awards for his films and was nominated for an Oscar as best director for his film Black Swan.

Jodorowsky is known for cult films such as El Topo and The Holy Mountain. His latest film Endless Poetry wich is kind of an autobiographical narration of his career, premiered at Cannes earlier this year.

A special award ceremony will be held at RIFF where Aronofsky will be presented with an award for creative excellence and Jodorowsky for his lifetime achievement. A few of their best films will be screened and the masters themself will answer questions from the audience at the end of selected screenings. They will also have a masterclass open to the public where he discusses his work.
