A phantasmagoric symphony of international films blasts its way across the big screen as the Flickers’ Rhode Island International Film Festival (RIIFF) launches its 18th Annual Flickers' Vortex Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and Horror Film Festival, Oct. 16–22. In addition to its traditional spooky film fare, “Vortex” will showcase a wide array of sci-fi and fantasy cinema. This year's festival includes a return of its popular H.P. Lovecraft Walking Tour, Oct. 21 and 22, presented in collaboration with the RI Historical Society, free after-school KidsEye programs, the Campus Connections program, which brings programming to area colleges and universities, and two free forums that look behind the scenes at creating genre films in the Ocean State.
