Attention Student Film Buffs! The Rhode Island International Film Festival, as part of this years festival marks the beginning of an exciting new program; not only for us, but for the entire state of Rhode Island and its communities.

This year, we are very pleased to announce that we are launching a new Student Film Jury program. This new program will offer local high school students the unique opportunity to participate directly in an internationally recognized, film festival, as well as aid in the festival’s long-standing commitment to community outreach and
education.

The student jury will be made up of a selected group of Rhode Island high school students who are entering their junior or senior year; though students who have graduated this year are also encouraged to apply. Accepted applicants will become student jurors in the only OSCAR qualifying film festival in New England. The
students will screen a selection of films (narrative, documentary, shorts), deliberate, and present the Student Jury Award, at the festival’s award ceremony. Students will also have the opportunity to meet with the various filmmakers, actors, and industry professionals from around the world, as well.

This program offers a terrific opportunity for high school students. It will not only make a great addition on the student's resumes and college applications, but it will also expose students to the very large entertainment industry, where they will have the chance to network and make contacts for their future.

The program will be accepting applications through July 19th, 2010. All applications will then be immediately reviewed and acceptance notifications will go out. The application and additional information will soon be up on our website. Though anyone interested is encourage to e-mail us now. This years festival runs August 10th - 15th.

We are truly excited to be launching not only the next generation of filmmakers, but also the next generation of film enthusiasts.

For information on how to apply please e-mail: Student Jury Coordinator, Tim Mendonca
