Around town for the 2013 Rome International Film Festival

A crowd forms outside the DeSoto Theatre for RIFF's closing night film,
"The 25,000 Mile Love Story"

The 10th annual Rome International Film Festival wrapped last weekend, marking a decade of globally-minded, globally-sourced independent features and shorts. Rome is a delightful city—Broad Street's residents and businesses welcoming RIFF's attendees with open arms every year. A few reviews from this year have already been posted, but we have more to write about the festival in the days to come. In the meantime, check out dozens of pictures from around town after the jump!
