RIFC - Rhode Island Film Collaborative - Independent Films and Filmmakers in RI

Filmaking Through Community


Wednesday, January 9, 2008


Open Call for the 12th Annual RIIFF is ongoing with a Reduced rate for Early Entrants.

The Rhode Island International Film Festival for independent film and video, is calling for entries to its 12th Anniversary Festival. The Festival will take place August 5-10, 2008 in the capital city, Providence and throughout scenic Rhode Island. Of special note is that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has elected to recognize the Rhode Island International Film Festival as a qualifying festival for the Short Films category for the Annual Academy Awards. With more than 3,000 film festivals worldwide, only 61 have this recognition.

The Festival is accepting shorts as well as feature- length films and videos. Films and videos must have been produced after 2004. The Rhode Island International Film Festival is one of only five broadly focused, independent festivals in New England accepting works of any type (dramatic, documentary, experimental, animation), on any subject matter, and in any genre. Filmmakers may enter their films either in competition or out of competition. Films in competition will be judged by a jury of distinguished industry professionals, peers and film fans. Whether in or out of competition, all films will be eligible for Audience Fest Favorites awards (The Viola M. Marshall Awards).

The Festival offers an artistic exchange as well as opportunities for the global creative community that are not available in the established entertainment industry. It is designed to foster contact among film directors, producers, distributors, backers and audiences.

Please note that our Early Deadline is January 15th and has a reduced entry fee.
