With Sunday’s closingnight screening of Whit Stillman’s Jane Austen adaptation Love & Friendship, the 18th annual RiverRun International Film Festival came to a close, having screened 166 films – 76 features and 90 shorts, representing 44 countries — during its 11-day run in Winston-Salem.

At the screening, which took place at the ACE Exhibition Complex on the UNCSA campus and was standing-room-only (among those in attendance was Winston-Salem mayor Allen Joines), RiverRun program manager Dossinger expressed her appreciation to the staff, sponsors, volunteers, filmmakers and, perhaps most important, the audiences who came out to support the festival and revel in the magic of movies.
