The 2013 Rhode Island International Film Festival ran from August 6–13, with films playing mostly in Providence. It was a somewhat sparsely attended but extraordinarily well-curated event; nothing that a little more publicity couldn’t help.
My overview of some of the films that played ran in PopMatters, here’s some highlights:
- Hank and Asha — Surprisingly inventive and adorable little epistolary digital romance.
- Gore Vidal: The United States of Amnesia — Sly, thoughtful, frequently hilarious documentary about the late wit and leftie scold.
- Death Metal Angola — Awesomely entertaining story about the small but scrappy death metal scene in war-torn Angola.
Keep your eyes peeled for them to come to a fest or high-number cable channel near you soon.
