Newport International Film Festival
The Newport Film Festival was generally held the first week in June and featured various international films at several local cinemas. In 1998 Christine Schomer, Nancy Donahoe and Pami Shamir co-founded the festival.
The last festival scheduled was June 3 to 7, 2009.
The last festival's executive director was Jennifer Maizel.
The festival's screenings, venues and Newport itinerary have largely been absorbed into two festivals: Its successor NewportFILM and to a lesser extent, the pre-existing Rhode Island International Film Festival. As with the Newport International Film Festival, both festivals offer Newport screenings at the Jane Pickens Theater, the city's only movie theater.
