A Return to the Big Screen! And Some on the Small Screen

The Oscar-qualifying Rhode Island International Film Fest (RIIFF) is back in a big way this year with a COVID-safe hybrid schedule of programming. The event takes place August 9 – 15, with a stacked set of online options and in-person screenings taking place at local drive-ins and outdoor venues. The festival is boasting an impressive 350 films this year, from shorts to features to films for kids. This year, Motif is excited to get in on the game. The August 11 installation of our popular monthly film screening series that takes place at Dusk will feature some RIIFF films, including NAME AND NAME AND NAME XXX.
