RiverRun International Film Festival is a non-profit cultural organization in Winston-Salem, NC dedicated to the role of cinema as a conduit of powerful ideas and diverse viewpoints. Our mission is to foster a greater appreciation of cinema and a deeper understanding of the many people, cultures and perspectives of our world through regular interaction with great films and filmmakers. While our 10-day Festival is our largest and most visible platform to reach audiences, RiverRun also presents several year-round screening programs which include RiverRun Retro; RiverRun Arts; the free ITVS Indie Lens Pop-Up Series in partnership with PBS North Carolina; and our free education initiative – Films With Class.
RiverRun will celebrate its Silver Anniversary this year, with the 25th RiverRun International Film Festival running April 13-22, 2023. Check back regularly for news and information about our many year-round film screenings and events, as well as for details about the upcoming Festival.
