BEHIND THE CAMERA LENS
10:00 a.m.

From script to screen, Rhode Island has become the Independent state for film. Starting with the foundation provided by the film and media programs at our colleges and universities, and the unique talent base of creative artists who have made their homes here, the Ocean State has built a reputation as a one-stop film studio. Among such notable filmmakers as Wes Anderson and the Farrelly Brothers, who have made their films within our state, the independent horror genre is steadily becoming an industry standard for RI’s film community.

 

This program is presented by the RWU Film Production Club and is a free event. Please be sure to register in advance as seating is limited.

lovecraftLiterary Providence: The Life and Times of H. P. Lovecraft
The tour departs from the John Brown House at 52 Power Street.


Cost: Tickets are $18 per person, and includes a ticket of choice to the final presentation of the Horror Festival


The life and work of Providence's best-known fantasy and horror author, Howard Phillips Lovecraft, provide the backdrop for this walking tour. Acknowledged genius of occult and horror fiction, Lovecraft's "Providence stories" (written between 1924 and 1935) provide the basis for this walk. Lovecraft wrote eloquently, and in great detail, about such landmarks as Prospect Terrace, the First Baptist Church, and Benefit Street houses. See the site of his former home, as well as the sights mentioned in The Case of Charles Dexter Ward, The Haunter of the Dark, The Shunned House, and The Call of Cthulhu. Lovecraft's own words offer a most amazing literary, historical, and architectural walking tour.


The tour lasts 90 minutes.

Monsters Wanted | Brian Cunningham, Director | USA | 90 min. | 2013

In early 2011, Rich Teachout quit his lucrative job to focus on creating a one-of-a-kind haunted attraction. He and his partner Janel dedicated every moment, ounce of energy and dollar to making their 'Scream Park' a reality. 'Monsters Wanted' is the story of their self-proclaimed madness and the industry, culture, and people who share it. We followed Rich and Janel's efforts from the first day of building beyond the last day of the season. The result is a one-of-a-kind peek into an industry known for its macabre antics and well-guarded secrets. Monsters Wanted: Haunt, or be Haunted.
