DAVENPORT, Iowa — A film festival dedicated to legendary horror author Stephen King is bringing free movie screenings to the Quad Cities.
Through the Dollar Baby Program, King has allowed emerging filmmakers to adapt his unproduced short stories into films that may help launch their careers. The Stephen King Rules Festival was developed by Barker Street Cinema to showcase a lineup of 25 independent films made possible by King's program.
The film fest is a part of the larger Alternating Currents Festival, which spans more than 20 indoor and outdoor venues across the Quad Cities.
Alternating Currents — organized by the Downtown Davenport Partnership, an affiliate of the Quad Cities Chamber — will run for its fifth year from Aug. 18-21 and showcase more than 100 free performances, including live music, comedy shows and film screenings as well as some art-related events.
