Highlights this year? Marshall says that Lost Years, a documentary about the Chinese diaspora in Canada, is "a really amazing" piece that has been approached for national public TV broadcast.

"Locally, I think Breakfast with Curtis, by Laura Colella, is going to go far," Marshall adds. "It had its world premiere at the LA Film Festival. Variety wrote up a wonderful review of it. [See "This Just In" on page 8 for more on Colella's film.] I think A Girl Like Her is going to be picked up and go farther. It deals with adoption and was locally done by Ann Fessler. I think American Songwriter, by Michael Altman [son of Robert Altman], that's going to go far."

And if they get the push that other films have enjoyed following showings at RIIFF, you can bet that the volume of next year's submissions will set a new record.

Most tickets are $10, available at the door, online, or by calling 401.861.4445. All the details are at rifilmfest.org.
