Rhode Island International Film Fest: Indowncity Picks

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

Short films are not only a way for a filmmaker to experiment with aesthetic and theme, they also provide an opportunity for those with varied tastes. Viewers get to experience the zeitgeist of film without the time commitment it would take to see all of the features within a festival. This year, the RI International Film Fest has programmed thematic shorts packages to scratch that adventurous itch.
