Outdoor Movies at Bay Spring!
RIIA Shorts 2021
Thursday July 22 at 7:30 pm

RIIA Shorts is a series of outdoor film screenings around the state of Rhode Island from July to October, featuring RI-based animators who work in the short film format, curated by Brian C O’Malley.

Rhode Island Independent Animators is a collective of filmmakers who live in Rhode Island and produce short animated films on very small budgets. In February 2020, RIIA Shorts had its first screening at the Jamestown Arts Center to a packed house – then the pandemic hit.

RIIA Shorts is coming back to the public in summer 2021 with these nine magical films:

  • pendulum
  • the floating hope of the winged elephantine
  • anonymous
  • whole
  • when planets mate
  • guest
  • unsheltered
  • the ecstatics
  • negative space

Join us for a free screening of all nine films at Bay Spring Community Center on July 22!
