The Flickers’ Rhode Island International Film Festival

August 8-13th:

The Flickers' Rhode Island International Film Festival (RIIFF) runs August 8-13th at venues in Providence, East Greenwich, Newport, Woonsocket and across the state of Rhode Island. Screening 265 films, it is the largest film festival in New England and every year attracts more than 6,200 film entries from around the world. Over 200 filmmakers are expected to descend on the state’s capital city this year. RIIFF is a magnet for those who’ve made short films because it is a qualifying event for the short film category of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Flickers' Rhode Island International Film Festival, ranked as one of the top 10 U.S. festivals, is New England’s only Academy Award-qualifying festival.
