The Horror Market Segment: Statistics & Demographics

 

For the past six years, Flickers through the Rhode Island International Film Festival has been presenting its annual RI Horror Film Festival. With roots firmly planted in the community, the Festival has become the largest Horror film festival in New England.

• attendance at the Festival has increased 85% since its start in 2000.
• entries in the genre have increased 8% annually
• filmmaker attendance has increased steadily with a base-line turn-out of between 3,000 - 4,000, which increases yearly based on special programming and events offered

• the HP Lovecraft Walking Tour sells out annually

The Festival has earned an international reputation for the quality and diversity of its programming. This level of excellence has opene doors here in the United States and around the world.

Each year the Festival attracts a vibrant, influential and loyal audience including:

• college students and members of the regional arts community
• alternative film-lovers from the larger community
• local and international filmmakers, and programmers
• media artists and other cultural trendsetters

As the Festival grows, it attracts more support from the corporate sector while maintaining the quality of the relationships it has always had in the arts communities.The City of Providence, ABC6, the RI Film and Television Office, the Rhode Island State Council for the Arts, the Rhode Island Council on the Humanites, Roger Willaims University, The Harrington School of Communications and Media at the University of Rhode Island, AMTRAK, CW28, WBRU Radio, the Rhode Island Historical Society, Cox Media and many more are sponsoring our spooktacular week of horrors.

The importance of the arts and alternative film market and the interest of a wider audience also makes the Festival an appealing story to both the mainstream and alternative media. These are a few of the media outlets that covered and supported the Festival in 2013: The Providence Journal, The Boston Globe, Rhode Island Monthly, Yankee Magazine, NewEnglandFilm.com, ABC6, and The Rhode Show, to name a few.

The steady growth of the Horror Festival has allowed the development of programs like the annual Costume Contest, haunted house tours, HP Lovecraft Walking Tour, the classic Silent Film Series, and programming geared for the region’s college student base and visiting filmmaker seminars that take place on and off college campuses. The Festival growth also permits an increase in the number of promotional events and screenings that are presented throughout the Festival.
