The Horror Market Segment: Statistics
For the past ten years, Flickers through the Rhode Island International Film Festival has been presenting its annual Horror Film Festival. With roots firmly planted in the community, the Festival has become the largest Horror film festival in New England.

The Festival is earning an international reputation for the quality and diversity of its programming.


The Festival’s excellence opens doors here in the United States and around the world; drawing in entries from over 45 countries in 2008.


Each year the Festival attracts a vibrant and influential audience including:

• college students and members of the regional arts community

• Alternative film-lovers from the larger community

• Local and international filmmakers, and programmers

• Media artists and other cultural trendsetters

As the Festival grows, it attracts more support from the corporate sector while maintaining the quality of the relationships it has always had in the arts communities.The City of Providence, WJAR TV 10, Fangoria, Rue Morgue, Clear Channel Communications, the Providence Phoenix, NetFilm, the University of Rhode Island and Amtrak are sponsors for the Festival in 2008.

The importance of the arts and alternative film market and the interest of a wider audience also makes the Festival an appealing story to both the mainstream and alternative media. These are a few of the media outlets that covered and supported the Festival in 2008: The Providence Journal, The Boston Globe, WBRU Radio, Rhode Island Monthly, The Federal Hill Gazette, Clear Channel Communications, Yankee Magazine, the Newport Mercury, NewEnglandFilm.com, NBC TV 10, plus fan magazine and publications.


The steady growth of the Horror Festival has allowed the development of programs like the annual Costume Contest, haunted walking tours, kids programs, anime, Silent Film Series, programming geared for the region’s college student base and visiting filmmaker seminars. It also permits an increase in the number of promotional events and screenings that are put on throughout the Festival.
