PROVIDENCE, RI • (October 31, 2011) - The eerie, macabre and bizarre in the world of cinema were given their due with the wrap of the Twelfth Annual Flickers RI International Horror Film Festival through adjudicated awards. From an entry base of 383 submissions including work from the United Kingdom, Australia, Ireland, Canada, Germany, Italy and the United States. 42 films were screened during the cinematic symphony of horror, October 27-30th at The Vets, Roger Williams University, the Bell Street Chapel Theatre, the Jamestown Arts Center, the Barrington Public Library and Providence Public Library. Attending this year were the cast and crew from 8 of the international films screened during the Festival including "Imposter,” “Vampyre Compendium,” “Beg,” “Inkubus,” and “Last Seen on Delores Street” for their premieres, along with directors and producers Marc Masciandaro, Matteo Bernardini from Italy, Devi Snively, Augustin Fuentes, and Kevin & Shanna MacDonald.

 

This year’s event was sponsored in part by the Cox Media, The Vets, Providence Phoenix, WJAR TV 10, and Amtrak.

 

“This was an exceptionally strong year for entries with films, not just coming from the United States, but from across the globe” said George T. Marshall, the Executive Director of the Rhode Island International Film Festival, that produces the Horror Festival sidebar. “It’s startling to see an Italian or German take on our Halloween traditions then realize how film and global communication has made the world a much smaller place.”

 

Despite rain, snow and even power outages, the Festival drew crowds across the state from the opening night Spooktacular at the Bell Street Chapel in Providence to the Mary Tefft White Cultural Center at Roger Williams University in Bristol for the program “Behind the Camera Lens,” which featured actor, William Forsythe and members of the cast of crew the locally produced “Inkubus.”

 

“From the sold-out HP Lovecraft Walking Tour to the numerous special programming events this Festival offered, we are proud that this sidebar to RIIFF has become an anticipated and fun community event.” Marshall added.
