A Word on the Horror Market:

RI International Horror Film Festival?

Main Dates: October 22-25, 2009




The Horror Market Segment: Statistics
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 1999
• Entries have increased by 75% over 2007
• Filmmaker attendance has increased by 65% over 2007

The Festival is earning an international reputation for the quality and diversity of its programming. The Festival’s excellence opens doors here in the United States and around the world.

Each year the Festival attracts a vibrant and influential 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, Clear Channel Communications, the Phoenix Communications Group, URI, Amtrak WJAR TV 10 are sponsoring our spooktacular weekend along with Cox On Demand.

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 2008: The Providence Journal, The Boston Globe, Rhode Island Monthly, The Federal Hill Gazette, Clear Channel Communications, Yankee Magazine, NewEnglandFilm.com, NBC TV 10, The Providence Phoenix. In 2009, there will be coverage nationally in "Everyday with Rachel Ray."

The steady growth of the Horror Festival has allowed the development of programs like the annual Costume Contest, the Exotic Fashion Show, haunted house tours, Silent Film Series, programming geared for the region’s college student base and visiting filmmaker seminars. It also permits an increase in the number of promotional events and screenings that are put on throughout the Festival.
