RiverRun 2011

The RiverRun International Film Festival is a regional event based in Winston-Salem, NC and is one of the premier film festivals in the southeastern United States. The 13th annual RiverRun will be held April 8–17, 2011. 

Founded in 1998, RiverRun was inspired by the French Broad River near Brevard, North Carolina, where the festival was originally held. Each year since its inception, RiverRun has grown substantially. The 2011 Festival will feature 118 films, including 57 features and 61 shorts from 32 different countries. 

Oscar-nominee Michael Shannon comes to RiverRun!

The dynamic, Oscar-nominated actor Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road, Boardwalk Empire) will be a special guest of RiverRun this year, and will be honored with the festival's Emerging Master Award.  We'll be hosting A Conversation with Michael Shannon on Monday, 4/11 at 6:30 in UNCSA's Babcock Theatre.  Tickets are free, and the event is open to the public!
