RIIFF VIP GALA OPENING

Meet, Mix and Mingle with Visiting Filmmakers and Cast Members


Maintaining its traditional focus on the importance of short films and saluting its affiliation with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences (the Oscars), the Rhode Island International Film Festival (RIIFF) opens this year’s fest with an eclectic and exciting array of shorts that range from funny and sensitive to the East Coast Premiere of a new animation short by the Walt Disney Studios. The Opening Night is Tuesday, August 8th with a 7:00 p.m. curtain at the historic Columbus Theatre Arts Center, 270 Broadway in Providence with a ticket price of $15.


This year’s opening screening will be bracketed before and after by two gala parties—one VIP and one public—at the Rotunda of One Citizens Plaza in downtown Providence—which will salute Rhode Island director, writer and actor, Michael Corrente who will be receiving RIIFF’s annual Creative Vision Award. Past winners of the prestigious award have been German film director Rosa von Praunheim and Elaine Lorillard, Founder of the Newport Jazz Festival.
