The 25TH ANNUAL FLICKERS’ “VIRTUAL” RHODE ISLAND INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL (RIIFF), running August 9-15, 2021, is a major destination on the Festival circuit and recognized by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences as a Qualifying Festival in all short film categories. It is the only Festival in New England with this accolade. The Festival welcomes stellar filmmaking talents from all over the world to beautiful Providence, Rhode Island—one of America’s oldest and most beloved cities. This year, responding to the impact of COVID-19, the Festival will take a hybrid approach utilizing area Drive-In theatres with social distancing and protocols/guidance from the Rhode Island Governor’s Office and the Department of Health and for special screenings. Virtual programming will also take place online.

RIIFF embraces both filmmakers and screenwriters with the sort of warm-hearted spirit that fosters long-lasting friendships, sparks exciting creative projects, and inspires artists to return again and again. Last year, five films from the Festival received Oscar® nominations and one, “the Neighbor’s Window” by Marshall Curry, won for Best Live Action Short.

Along with double features at the Rustic and Misquamicut Drive-Ins, online webinars, industry workshops, special tributes, virtual coffee talks, filmmaker interviews, and post film screening Q&A’s, the 2021 Festival will continue popular annual programs. This programming includes the acclaimed Scriptbiz Seminar, the Rhode Island Film Forum, interviews on the Festival’s weekly Rhode Island PBS series, “doubleFEATURE,” the Youth Film Jury, KidsEye Screenings and online summer workshop, a virtual Awards program and the announcement of this year’s Winifred Brownell Scholarship Fund award winner.

The Full Festival Schedule will be available by July 29th and will be evolving throughout the Festival, with new programming appearing daily.

2021 FESTIVAL DEDICATION:

This year’s Festival is dedicated to the memories of the 540,000+ individuals who have lost their lives to COVID-19, including the more than 148,000 in the United States and the more than one thousand in the State of Rhode Island.

FLICKERS' RHODE ISLAND INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

The Flickers' Rhode Island International Film Festival (RIIFF), has secured its place in the global community as the portal for the best in international independent cinema, earning the respect of domestic and foreign filmmakers, filmgoers and trend watchers. RIIFF is widely recognized as a credentialed, industry-friendly launch pad for the work of exceptional emerging talent. This confluence of art and commerce brought together world-class celebrities, award-winning filmmakers, new talent and audience members in record numbers last year. Ranked as one of the top 10 Festivals in the United States, RIIFF is a qualifying festival for the Live Action, Animated and Documentary Short Film Academy Awards through its affiliation with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences and the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA). It is also a qualifying event for the Canadian Screen Awards. There are only 10 film festivals worldwide that share this distinction and RIIFF is the only festival in New England.

RIIFF is truly a place where the stars align!
