Weekly on RI PBS
Our new television magazine and film showcase
We are pleased to announce the launch of the new 60 min. weekly series, television magazine “doubleFEATURE,” a showcase for the art of film and the artists who create them. The first episode premiered on Friday, July 1st at 8:00 p.m. on RI PBS, WSBE 36.
Each week, “doubleFEATURE” presents award-winning short films that have premiered at the Flickers' Rhode Island International Film Festival over the past 20 years. Ranked as one of the top 10 Festivals in the United States, RIIFF is also a qualifying festival for the Live Action, Documentary and Animation Short Film Academy Awards through its affiliation with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences. It was also recently named a BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) and Canadian Screen Awards (Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television)-qualifying Festival. There are only 6 film festivals worldwide that share this distinction.
Steven Feinberg, Executive Director of the RI Film and Television, and an accomplished writer/director, will introduce audiences to the filmmakers those who work behind the camera lens through incisive and revealing interviews.
“doubleFEATURE” promises a voyage of discovery where viewers learn about the talented artists from Rhode Island and beyond who work in the industry or aspire to create their career. From seasoned professionals, college and high school students, to those whose passion and creativity are their drivers, “doubleFEATURE” shines a spotlight. Writers, directors, producers, cinematographers, talent, costume, set and sound designers, gaffers, grips and production assistants share their inspiration.
