Review for Flickers-The Newport Film-Video Society & Arts Collaborative, Newport, RI, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Flickers and the multiple efforts that it has created, including RIIFF, Kid's Eye, and most recently the national 7DAYPSA competition, are not only adding to the quality of life in RI but also bringing national attention to the state and is contributing to the state's economy. The 7DAYPSA competition that challenges local indie filmmakers to produce public service announcements for local non-profit organizations that provide services to the community. It was recently created by RIIFF and has now spread from Rhode Island to events in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut and beyond.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have seen film-goers become inspired to enter the world of film making. I have met first time filmmakers see the fruit of their labors applauded by an audience. I have watched filmmakers and other industry professionals network and collaborate.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Seeing indie filmmakers excited by the support and affirmation they get from bringing their films to the festival. Seeing how creative the filmmaker teams are when they write, shoot and edit their public service announcements for the 7DAYPSA.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

It could not only expand its celebration of the art of film, but it could support and assist local filmmakers with their efforts, as well as help those local filmmakers build a greater professional skills base in order to compete in the film industry.
