• Download the 2013 Application Form


Attention Student Film Buffs!

As an important part of this year's Flickers: Rhode Island International Film Festival, we are pleased to announce an expansion of an exciting pilot program geared just for you.


This year, we are excited to continue the Flickers Youth Film Jury Program. This program offers local high school students the unique opportunity to participate directly in an internationally recognized, film festival, as well as aid in the festival’s long-standing commitment to community outreach and education.


YouthJThe student jury will be made up of a selected group of Rhode Island high school students who are entering their junior or senior year; though students who have graduated this year are also encouraged to apply.


Accepted applicants will become student jurors in the only OSCAR® qualifying film festival in New England. The students will screen a selection of films (narrative, documentary, shorts), deliberate, and present the Youth Jury Award, at the festival’s award ceremony. Students will also have the opportunity to meet with the various filmmakers, actors, and industry professionals from around the world, as well.


This program offers a terrific opportunity for high school students. It will not only make a great addition on the student's resumes and college applications, but it will also expose students to the very large entertainment industry, where they will have the chance to network and make contacts for their future.


The program will be accepting applications through June 7th, 2013. All applications will then be immediately reviewed and acceptance notifications will go out. The application and additional information will soon be up on our website. Though anyone interested is encourage to e-mail us now. This years festival runs August 6-11th.



The Flickers Youth Jury program was created to support education through the art of film, creating a community outreach, by exposing youth to the world of independent film. Our goal is to expand their knowledge of film and creativity; to nurture and discover the next generation of quality, thoughtful, and creative filmmakers and film enthusiasts.



The youth film jury, is a program that introduces youth to the world of independent film. The program is normally composed of a group of 20-30 students, who attend multiple screenings during the Festival, Q&A’s, and festival events. Their goal is to deliberate, and choose a Best Feature, Best Documentary, and Best Short to receive the Youth Jury award. The youth jury program also allows students to network, and make connections for their future.
