RiverRun International Film Festival - March 30 - April 9, 2017

 

 

One of the fastest-growing regional film festivals in the U.S., and a premier film festival in the Southeast, Winston-Salem's RiverRun is an Academy Award-qualifying film festival showcasing a variety of narrative, documentary, student, animated and short films from all genres. Now in its 19th year, the 11-day festival will be held March 30 - April 9, 2017. The 2016 festival lineup featured more than 150 films  - 76 features and 90 shorts -- representing 44 countries.

Annually held in spring, RiverRun screens a variety of feature-length and short films from all genres and presents a broad range of special events, including high-profile regional premieres, celebrity tributes, family matinees and classic retrospectives as well as a mixture of panel discussions and parties.  Noted Filmmakers and special guests travel to share their films, passions and stories with audiences.

Comparable in size and scope to the well-regarded film festivals in Nashville, Atlanta and Boston, RiverRun is a general audience festival that draws attendees from throughout the South and offers an eclectic program from film studios, independent distributors and first-time filmmakers. As the Festival has obtained national and international recognition, RiverRun has attracted substantial press and increased levels of attendance.
