Eric Bilodeau | artistic director

Raised in Rhode Island’s family theater business, Eric Bilodeau has programmed cinematic venues for over thirty years. His experience spans the film exhibition horizon, including advising and booking for multi-screen commercial cinemas, small art house theaters, a multitude of international film festivals and programming his own traveling pop-up, Cricket Cinema. Running Providence’s beloved Cable Car Cinema for 18 years also sharpened his skills in a broad range of film genres. After selling the Cable Car, Eric was the director of programming for the Newport International Film Festival until joining the Providence Children’s Film Festival in 2010. Eric is also the children’s film programmer for the The Martha’s Vineyard Film Festival and a festival advisor for the International Kids Film Festival of India.
