            Attn: Shawn Quirk • 36 Rhode Island Avenue
            Newport, RI  02840 (United States)

 

Please make sure that you insure your work with the appropriate carrier. Additionally, for international films, cite that the work is for "Cultural Purposes Only, No Commercial Value." The latter is very important or else you will be charged customs fees. Additionally, please let us know as soon as you can where you'd like us to return your print/video. If you come to the Festival, you will be able to sign for your work and take it with you.

 

3a. Exhibition Copy Return Shipping Information:

Please be sure that you let us know where your exhibition copy needs to be returned and when.

We usually spend the week after the festival shipping out all copies. That information should be with your exhibition copy and sent to this email: traffic@film-festival.org

 

IMPORTANT: If we do not hear from you, we will send the copy back to you from the registration address we have on hand.

 

4. Poster Sizes for Publicity:

Posters can be of any size, no requirements. The largest we take is the marquee poster; the smallest can be postcard size. A variety is encouraged.  Posters should be sent to the same address as the exhibition copy of the film. Please send them us at least a week and half before the Festival.

 

5. Festival Awards for Film and Screenplay Competition: 

Film awards are trophies and specific sponsor related prizes, not cash. The winner of Best Short and Best Documentary Short will be submitted to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for Oscar® consideration. This year, Panavision has come on board as a sponsor and we will be presenting a camera rental package worth $10,000. Screenplay awards (besides the Grand Prize) are software, promotion, publicity, etc.  The awards ceremony is Sunday morning the 10th at Metcalf Auditorium, RISD MUseum, and includes a light breakfast with our compliments. The Awards program will take place at 10:00 a.m. and will not conflict with afternoon screenings.

Providence Location Walking Tour:

Takes place on Wednesday, August 6th in the morning at 11:00 a.m.; free for filmmakers, tkts on a first-come, first-served basis. Sign up below (coming)

 

Join us for this wonderful tour of the City of Providence presented by the RI Historical Society under the aegis of the RI Film & Television Office. This year, you may be lucky enough to discover the new shoot underway with legendary filmmaker, Woody Allen.

 

Discover why Providence is truly a Hollywood backlot, learn about its history, and find out about some of our state's most notable and colorful characters. The goal for the tour is to provide filmmakers with an “insider’s” view of the downcity and riverwalk area with an eye toward what would be interesting/unanticipated places for filming.

 

The Rhode Island Film Forum:

Takes place on Thursday, August 7th

The RI Film Forum is a one-day symposium hosting leading national and local film industry players, conversing about the key issues facing the Rhode Island and New England film community today. This informative and entertaining discussion presents our region's small business owners, filmmakers, community organizations, and film enthusiasts with the latest opportunities for better understanding, and getting involved with, local film production and exhibition.

 

As a visiting filmmaker, this event is a great way for you to network, discover what is happening in this region, and even think about shooting an upcoming film here.

 

We strongly encourage your attendance and have been able to underwrite your ticket so there is no charge!

Here are details about specific rates and contacts for lodging:

THE DEAN

122 Fountain Street,

Providence, Rhode Island 02903

+1 401 455 DEAN

Special Discount Rate Available at $109 per night; CALL TO BOOK!

info@thedeanhotel.com

www.thedeanhotel.com

 

The Dean has passed the test. The fifty-two-room boutique hotel in downtown Providence clinched press from The New York Times and Wallpaper magazine for turning a former brothel into the epitome of chic. The historic 1912 building began as a rescue mission for the Episcopal Diocese, but in the 1960s turned into a transient hotel and strip club called the Civic View Inn and then later evolved into the Sportsman’s Inn gentlemen’s club. The design was overhauled by Brooklyn-based ASH NYC, whose cofounder and CEO Ari S. Heckman grew up in Providence. Inside and outside, Rhode Island connections abound. Local artisans designed end tables and bed frames (including funky bunk beds!) and contributed art and photography, railings were crafted by the Steel Yard and Recycle-a-Bike refurbished five vintage bicycles, available for guest use. Architects include Christine West and Phil Derby of Kite Architects in Providence, and restaurateur Mike Sears helms the new Magdalenae Room cocktail lounge and the German beer garden Faust’s Hofbrauhaus. Rhode Island-based Bolt is brewing beans at its coffee shop, and there’s even a karaoke bar called Boombox where groups can (ironically) rent rooms by the hour. Add board games created by Hasbro and a library from Symposium Books to the mix and the Dean may be cool enough for New York to notice, but it’s Rhode Island all the way.

17. Accessing Rhode Island Press and Media:

 

We have received many emails and telephone calls about how to maximize the press coverage for your film's exhibition in Rhode Island. We have an up-to-date Excel spread sheet compiled by our staff, which you can access, click here. If you'd like a copy of the Media list, click here.

 

Questions? write us at <xnguyen@film-festival.org>

 

The RIIFF staff is here to help you any way we can. One of the things we've learned is that it is best to niche out your work to area reviewers and writers. For example: Do not send everything to the film critic when you might be better served by contacting the religious, music, sports, etc. writers.

 

We can definitely help you with this type of targeting. Additionally, we will post as much as we can on our website and distribute releases for you electronically to the media.
