Now in its 5th year, the Online New England Film Festival has grown to feature 33 local films from 12 regional film festivals from September 1 through October 15. Part of my site NewEnglandFilm.com, this year’s festival brings together a curated selection of short films from film festivals around New England, including these from the Rhode Island International Film Festival:
Two brothers hide for their lives in an old family fallout shelter.
Director Derek Dubois is an award-winning independent Rhode Island filmmaker. He also teaches in the Film Studies program at Rhode Island College. Currently, he is promoting his latest short film Lucid.
A showdown between two motley characters.
Director Steven Subotnick is an animator and artist living in Providence, RI. His films have received international awards, and his work has been included in competitive and curated shows at festivals, museums, and galleries around the world. He is currently teaching at Rhode Island School of Design, Brown University, and Massachusetts College of Art and Design.
The Perfect Day for a Picnic
Howard, a factory worker, returns home each evening to find that his bed-ridden wife is changing.
Director Bob Lewis has lived in the US for 20 years and in Providence for nine years. Eager to connect with local filmmakers in Rhode Island, he quickly became involved with The Rhode Island Film Collaborative. His first introduction to the local film making community was working as Assistant Camera on a local feature Sleather.
