SENE Film, Music & Arts Festival
Providence, Rhode Island / April 24-28, 2018 / senefest.com
More than 50 juried awards, 20 audience awards and $30,000 in cash make for some dandy prizes at this now-decade-old New England multimedia fest. Southeast New England Film, Music & Arts Festival’s (SENE) press liaison works tirelessly to spread moviemakers’ messages throughout local media outlets. And the festival’s programming relationship with the Boston Comedy Festival (held in September) makes short funny films eligible for a second, earlier submission, here, if you’re looking to test which jokes work and which don’t on the crowds at SENE beforehand.
