RiverRun International Film Festival - April 4-13, 2014
The 16th annual RiverRun International Film Festival is April 4-13, 2014.
Last year's festival presented 143 films, which includes 66 features and 77 shorts from 35 countries.
Held each spring, RiverRun screens a wide variety of feature-length and short films from all genres, and also presents a broad range of special events, including high-profile regional premieres of significant films, celebrity tributes, family matinees and classic retrospectives as well as a mixture of panel discussions and parties. Filmmakers and guests travel from Germany, New Zealand, Mexico, Canada and across North America to share their films, passions and stories with our 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. RiverRun issued more than 15,500 tickets in 2012, marking an increase of 10% in admission.
One of RiverRun's greatest assets is the collection of industry guests we bring to Winston-Salem each year, to attend the Festival's events and share their passion with the filmgoers attending screenings. RiverRun has two awards that are given each year to honor filmmakers.
