Now in its twelfth year, the Rhode Island International Film Festival, (RIIFF) will take place August 5-10, 2008. In its brief life span, the Festival has become a leading juried competition showcase for international independent filmmakers and their work.
The Festival’s goal is to recognize achievement and innovation in a variety of filmmaking and storytelling disciplines while providing an opportunity to secure wider distribution. The Festival also actively supports and encourages film preservation and its restoration, thus ensuring future generations of this unique artistic medium.
The RIFF takes place in the historic cities of Newport and Providence as well as satellite locations throughout the state. Visit the the RIFF website for a complete schedule of this years festival.
KidsEye International, a popular division of the RIFF, has expanded to include more films this year over five mornings at the Bell Street Chapel in Providence—cutting edge films by and for kids.
