2013 Oscar® Experience: Providence
Sunday, February 24, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 11:30 PM (EST)
The Oscar® Experience: Providence is the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' grassroots program that enables not-for-profit charities to host glamorous parties while raising much needed funds. In 2013, the FLICKERS: Rhode Island International Film Festival (RIIFF) has again been selected to host Rhode Island’s only officially sanctioned party by the Academy; one of only 49 official parties throughout the country. "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane, a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), will host the 2013 Oscars ceremony in Los Angeles. First-time Academy Awards producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron made the announcement and said that they're "thrilled" about their choice.
MacFarlane is best known for his envelope-pushing animated TV shows "American Dad" and "Family Guy," a cartoon set in the fictional Quahog, Rhode Island.
