The inspiring story of Rhode Island Senator Claiborne Pell and his fight, against all odds, to give every student the opportunity to get a higher education regardless of their economic background. 

In partnership with Flickers' Rhode Island International Film Festival (RIIFF) and the Rhode Island Film and Television Office, Rhode Island PBS proudly presents doubleFEATURE, an exceptional opportunity for our viewers to see artistic, original, award-winning short films from a collection of animation, foreign language, documentary, or fiction films each week.

doubleFEATURE showcases the art of the short film and the artists who make them. Each week, in addition to presenting a selection of two or more short films, between the short films, Steve Feinberg, director of the RI Film and Television Office, and George Marshall, executive producer at RIIFF, interview filmmakers and industry professionals.
