Vortex Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and Horror Film Festival

Providence, RI 02901


A phantasmagoric symphony of international films blasts its way across the big screen as the Flickers’ Rhode Island International Film Festival (RIIFF) launches its 19th Annual Flickers' Vortex Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and Horror Film Festival. In addition to its traditional spooky film fare “Vortex” will showcase a wide-array of Sci-Fi and Fantasy cinema. This year's Festival includes a return of its popular H.P. Lovecraft Walking Tour presented in collaboration with the RI Historical Society, free after-school KidsEye Programs, the Campus Connections program that brings programming to area Colleges and Universities, and two free Forums that look behind-the-scenes at creating genre films in the Ocean State.
