From cutting-edge documentaries to narrative films whose stories have been ripped from the headlines, the eighth annual Roving Eye International Film Festival promises to be a portal for discovery to film-lovers across the region. The popular and acclaimed event, celebrating global cinema and artists, will take place April 14-19 & 28th, and is presented by a collaboration between FLICKERS: Rhode Island International Film Festival (RIIFF) and Roger Williams University (RWU). More than 40 international films will be showcased, many United States premieres. All screenings are free to the general public and will take place on the campus of Roger Williams University in Bristol, R.I. at the Global Heritage Hall and the Mary Tefft White Cultural Center. The Festival’s slogan for 2013 is “You Know You Want to Look.”

Students at the University, with the guidance of FLICKERS: Rhode Island International Film Festival, create the Roving Eye International Film Festival through the Film Minor senior course, “Curation and Film Festival Production.” Flickers’ Executive Director and RWU Professor, George T. Marshall teaches the senior-level course. Students spent the first part of the spring semester reviewing more than 600 films and create, curate and market the entire event. Roberta E. Adams, Ph.D., Assistant Dean of Humanities and Performing Arts, is the Festival Chair, linking faculty adjudicators with students, RIIFF and the RWU administration in a unique collaboration.
