Honorees announced for riverrun 2022

RiverRun is honored to present awards this year to an outstanding group of women whose careers span from the “Golden Era” of Hollywood to today’s most cutting-edge filmmaking techniques. 

Master of Cinema Awards will be presented to Gigi Perreau, joining us for two screenings of the MGM film noir classic Shadow on the Wall; two-time Academy Award nominee Kristi Zea joining us for a screening of Married to the Mob; and Haley Mills, who we will show a screening of The Trouble with Angels for.

Our Spark Award will be presented to Iman K. Zawahry, joining us for a screening of her comedy Americanish; and Nicole Bullock Brown, joining us as a special guest on a panel focusing on Career Sustainability in a Changing Film and Television Landscape.  

We look forward to welcoming these acclaimed filmmakers at the 24th RiverRun International Film Festival.  Each honoree will receive one of our hand-blown glass awards from Sarah Band made possible through the generosity of Lynn and Barry Eisenberg.
