On May 12, 2020, the RYFF family lost its very own

Lukenson Laguerre

His work for the Rockland Youth Film Festival was invaluable and without him, our show never would have came to life and it would have simply remained a thought.

You will forever be missed Lukey 


To help cover the funeral costs during this particularly stressful financial time, a GoFundMe page has been created to help the family.

Any amount will help,

but love, support, prayers, and wishes mean just as much.




Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, 

the 2020 Rockland Youth Film Festival has been canceled.

We apologize for the inconvenience but hope that all our film submitters, sponsors, friends, and family remain safe and healthy during this time.


Presented by the youth from Spring Valley Commons, the EELEF Center, and associated sponsors, RYFF is a yearly international film festival showcasing movies made by filmmakers 21 years old and younger from the Rockland County area and around the world.

RYFF accepts film submissions year round!
