2nd Annual Archive Remix Film Festival Premiere

The Rhode Island Historical Society will premiere its 2nd Annual Archive Remix Film Festival on Saturday, October 1 at 7pm at the Old Slater Mill in Pawtucket. This outdoor screening will present an hour-long program of 3-minute creative remixes by local filmmakers using materials from the RIHS Moving Image and Audio Collections (MIAC).

Creators were provided with access to over 300 minutes of footage from the 20th Century and tasked with creating 3-minute short films composed of at least 75% archival footage.

“As an archivist, there’s nothing more gratifying than seeing the materials in your care put to use,” says Archivist and Curator of MIAC Becca Bender. “We’re particularly excited to see how the Remix participants extract new meaning from the RIHS film collections through creative reuse.”

Gates will open for the outdoor screening at 6:30pm. Ample parking is available and guests are welcome to bring coolers and refreshments. In the event of inclement weather, the event will move indoors to the Blackstone Valley Tourism’s theatre, located directly across the street from Slater Mill.

Additional screenings will be held across the state throughout the month of October, and include:

This event is made possible in part with support from Amica Insurance and the Rhode Island Foundation, as well as event partners LittleFire and the National Park Service.
