The FLICKERS: RI International Horror Film Festival is Proud to Bring You Another Warped Year of Fear, Malice, Murder and Mayhem...
A symphony of cinematic horror slashes its way across the big screen as the FLICKERS: Rhode Island International Film Festival (RIIFF) unspools its 15th Annual RI International Horror Film Festival, October 20-26th. In addition to its traditional spooky film fare, this year's festival includes a return and two-day expansion of its popular H.P. Lovecraft Walking Tour presented in collaboration with the RI Historical Society, a Date-Night of Horror, and a Forum that looks behind the scenes of making horror films in the Ocean State featuring Steven Feinberg, Executive Director of the RI Film and Television Office.
Our program director is Shawn Quirk. This year he is assisted by RWU interns Xuan Nguyen and Nick Palermo.
The 2014 festival will include an expanded focus featuring horror, thrillers and sci-fi fantasy programming. Screenings will take place in Providence along with satellite programming in Jamestown, Kingston and Bristol.
The FLICKERS: RI International Horror Film Festival is an eerie-sistable salute to what is an often-overlooked genre that will include a bevy of World and U.S. Premiers of short, feature-length and documentary films. In 2013, 56 films were selected from 521 submissions and, representing 19 countries including the United Kingdom, Australia, Ireland, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Italy, Poland, Spain, Japan, Chile, Switzerland, and the United States. Many of the filmmakers were in attendance, so audience members had a chance to meet, ask questions, and even network with the next generation of horror-auteurs.
General Admission for screenings remains $10.00 per person. Festival 6-packs are available at $40 (good year round and at any RIIFF film event) can be purchased online: http://www.film-festival.org/SixPack08.php. Group Discounts can be arranged by calling the Festival office at 401/861.4445.
BEHIND THE CAMERA LENS FORUM AT ROGER WILLIAMS UNIVERSTY
On Friday morning, October 24th, at 10:00 a.m. horror and sci-fi film fans will want to be at the Mary Tefft White Cultural Center, located at the University Library at Roger Williams University in Bristol, providing audiences with the opportunity to meet some of the movers and shakers in the film, horror and sci-fi production scene. Rhode Island has become known as 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 the Ocean State, the independent horror and sci-fi fantasy genre is steadily becoming an industry standard for RIís 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.
Support for the Forum has been provided by the Rhode Island Film & Television Office, the Flickers: Rhode Island International Film Festival, the RWU Feinstein College of Arts and Sciences, Dean Robert Eisinger, Associate Dean Roberta Adams, the RWU Film Production Club, and the RWU Department of Student Programs and Leadership.
Tickets are $18 per person, can be purchased online, and include a ticket to the special screenings of the 2014 Horror Festival that were inspired by Lovecraft.
