JWU Hosts International Film Festival

There’s always something going on at JWU — even in the summer.

From August 7-10, JWU hosted screenings for the world-renowned Rhode Island International Film Festival (RIIFF), a film festival that has taken place in Providence for the last 23 years. RIIFF brings filmmakers from all over the world to Rhode Island in celebration of independent filmmaking. It’s a qualifying festival for the Academy Awards in three categories (Live Action Short, Animation Short and Documentary Short), meaning their grand prize selections in these categories are considered for Oscar nominations. In other words, they’re kind of a big deal in the filmmaking world.
