Now in its second year, The Ravens Independent Film Festival (RIFF) is an annual South African Township Film Festival held on the 24th September, National Heritage Day, which is also a public holiday.
The brainchild of Kane Adonis of Planet Hardcore, RIFF is an initiative with a mission to create awareness and promote South African artist, fashion, films, film makers and writers.

"We endeavour to highlight and focus on diversity, community, youth and education" said Kane Adonis in an earlier press statement.
"This is the second year we are hosting the RIFF and this year we will also introduce a music video category" Kane told Bruinou.com In a later conversation.
"Artist will also form part of panel discussions introducing their art to festival goers."
"RIFF17 will provide a platform for various film screenings, fashion exhibits, on ramp modelling, live dance, on stage performances, book exhibits and there will also various food vendors.
