"Dear Albert" (7 Around 2 Wrapped by 1) took home three awards and "Vlog" (Four Frogs Productions) was the Runner Up Best Film.  Other winners include Best Actress Lizzie Stanton (Mars Gas Studios' "Drama") and Wax Idiotical Films' "Date?" for Best Writing.

Congratulations to all of the teams.  For a complete list of awards, head over to the official Providence 48HFP page. 
Or support local film and score some quality entertainment by purchasing the Best Of on DVD or blu-ray. You can do so online or in person at various RIFC events.

Rock & Reel

"Hey, that 48 Hour Film Project seems really interesting - are there any reasonably similar but distinguishable events coming up?  Hopefully one with a less strict time-frame and maybe some cool local musical acts?" 
You're in luck.  The inaugural Rock & Reel is gearing up to make a splash in October.

That's right - it's Rock-tober, Hip Hop-tober, Plastic Soul-tober and many more as local musical acts of every genre will collaborate with area filmmakers to produce a narrative music video in just one week. 
Tell your filmmaking and musician friends to sign up for info    
BOB: Blessed Be the Dysfunction That Binds

Artists' Exchange will host "BOB: Blessed Be the Dysfunction That Binds" from September 6th through 9th.  Mary Ann Hay directs this 90 minute one woman show written by and starring Anne Pasquale.   

"Meet Anne's special needs brother, Bob, and her family. Share in the craziness, laughter, tears and triumphs that highlight their journey. Playing 20 different characters in her 90-minute solo show, playwright and performer Anne Pasquale tells the hilarious and heartbreaking story of growing up in Rhode Island when her family is not quite the same as everyone else's. For everyone who has wondered at their own or anyone else's sanity, BOB reminds us that we can always acquire the tools to see us through."

Performances are at 7pm on September 6th, 7th and 8th, and then 2pm on Sunday, September 9th.  The performance on Thursday the 6th will include an ASL interpretation by Mary Ellen Breen.  

Tickets are $15.  Call (401) 490-9475 for reservations.
