On Friday afternoon, October 23rd, at 3:30 p.m. horror and sci-fi film fans will want to be at the Global Heritage Hall, Room 01, Roger Williams University in Bristol. The Forum, “Behind the Camera Lens” provides audiences with the opportunity to meet some of the movers and shakers in the film, horror and sci-fi production scene.

Rhode Island has become known as the Independent state for film. Starting with the foundation provided by the film and media programs at our colleges and universities, and the unique talent base of creative artists who have made their homes here.  The Ocean State has built a reputation as a one-stop film studio. Among such notable filmmakers as Wes Anderson, Woody Allen and the Farrelly Brothers, and others who have made their films within the Ocean State, the independent horror and sci-fi fantasy genre is steadily becoming an industry standard for RI’s film community.

“Behind the Camera Lens,” will be hosted by Steven Feinberg (“Fortress,” “Peter York,” “Pell Grants: A Passion for Education”), Executive Director of the Rhode Island Film & Television Office, the man behind the state’s high profile within the industry, and filmmaking professionals who have successfully made careers within the industry: Panelists: Kevin McCarthy, (“Fury: The Tales of Ronin Pierce”), Christina Raia (“Summit”), Tommy Denucci (“Almost Mercy”) and Shawn Quirk, RIIFF’s Programming Director. 

The RWU Film Production Collaborative will host the free event.
