RIFC awarded grant by RISCA!

RISCARhode Island State Council for the Arts announced its second round of grant awards for the 2010-2011 season, supporting projects by individual artists, arts organizations, schools and educational organizations in communities throughout the state.  Out of 238 applications, 76 were awarded includining a $2200 grant for the RIFC for our spring "Rock & Reel" film/music program.
In announcing the awards, State Arts Council director Randall Rosenbaum said that it was important to remember, particularly in challenging times, that the arts employ people and help communities. "The arts are an important part of the Rhode Island economy", he said. "Each grant we award helps to employ an artist, even for a short period of time, and those artists - our neighbors - help support local businesses by paying rent, buying groceries, and by providing cultural programs in our communities. Our applicants tell us that over 117,000 people will benefit from the projects we just supported, and those people in turn will contribute in their own way to our state's economic recovery."

We thank RISCA for all their work in securing arts funding for the State of RI.  The RIFC would not be able to provide and offer to the independant filmamking community all of our programs, classes, groups, events and member benefits without funding from RISCA.
