Art & Design Film Festival
(11.6) The Art & Design Film Festival opens Thursday night with “The Happy Film,” to be followed by a Q&A with director Ben Nabors and RISD Graphic Design director, John Caserta. Emily Steffian, co-owner of the Cable Car Cinema with husband Dan Kamil, is the artistic director of the festival, which comes out of their Providence Cinematique project.
The mission of the festival is to showcase artists, designers, craftspeople, collectors, curators and makers from around the world while entertaining, educating, and reflecting on the influence art and design have on community, history, politics, personal expression and our contemporary landscape.
All the films showing in Providence (festival runs through Sunday, November 6th) are shown at the Cable Car Cinema unless otherwise noted. Opening night is $30. Regular admission tickets are $10. (The Newport leg of the fest starts November 10th.) Go here for schedule and tickets. (Facebook event page.)
