April 19-29, 2018


RiverRun’s 2018 call for entries is now closed. Please check back this spring to see our full lineup announcement for the 2018 Festival. Our call for entries for the 2019 Festival will open in mid-summer, so stay tuned! 

If you are interested in submitting a film to RRIFF, there are several ways to submit. Online submissions are accepted via FilmFreeway, as well as Withoutabox, where members can receive a $5.00 discount on their entry fees. You can also submit using RiverRun’s own application form, which is available below.  Our deadlines for the 2018 Festival are below so you can plan ahead.
North Carolina students: there is no submission fee for NC students who can provide a valid student ID, but you must submit using the online form below rather than through Film Freeway/Withoutabox.

Deadlines for Submissions:

Fees are waived for all North Carolina students with a photocopy/scan of a valid student ID.


OR, submit as a North Carolina student using the online submission form
