Little Casper arrived on Sunday, June 2nd at 1:36 a.m. 7 lbs. 15 oz. 22 in. long. in the city of Providence, Rhode Island.
We are all excited and happy about his safe delivery.
Now our most pressing question is how long before his dad, Shawn, has him reviewing films...
Our sincere and heartfelt congratulations to the happy parents: Katie and Shawn!
In 2010, we initiated the creation of the New England Film Festival Alliance (NEFFA) with our sister festivals of Woods Hole and Martha's Vineyard. This Alliance brings the sponsorship of three festivals in one simplified transaction, offering an even larger audience, more film and year-round opportunities.
For the first time in film festival history a corporate sponsor can economize their sponsorship dollar and expand their reach within the region of New England. NEFFA has put together a sponsorship package that provides significant visibility among attendees and media through and throughout their partnership.
The New England Film Festival Alliance brings together three film festivals in New England; Martha’s Vineyard, Woods Hole and the entire state of Rhode Island with the opportunity to reach 40,000 affluent and educated people annually who align themselves with the celebrities, artists, the art of film making and the lifestyle of these destinations. We attract the beauties, the hunks, the comics, the legends...the most cutting edge of talent. One festival is accredited by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, Movie Maker Magazine name another festival the top 25 coolest film festivals of 2009 and this internationally renowned vacation destination has attracted numerous American Presidents, world dignitaries and intellectuals of all types.
The New England Film Festival Alliance looks forward to growing throughout New England in the years to come.
