RiverRun International Film Festival

Y'all - tickets for the RiverRun International Film Festival are now on sale! This is such an awesome event and I'm so proud that it's in my hometown every year. What a cool thing for Winston-Salem to have! The Festival runs March 26 - April 4, and this year, the staff had a record 2,100 submissions to screen. That's pretty unreal! They've selected some incredible films, shorts and documentaries, and they're even showing some throwbacks. Red Cinemas in Greensboro will run some screenings, so whether you live in Winston or GSO, you can take part in the Festival!

I was thrilled to attend the 2020 Festival Launch Party at the Carolina Theatre's Crown Room this week, where they announced the lineup. It's exciting to see so many people of all ages and backgrounds unite around film. We got to see several reel clips and previews, and there's seriously something for everyone.

I'm most looking forward to seeing "Love Sarah", "Blue & Gold Marching Machine" (part of the NC shorts), "Standing Up, Falling Down" and "Slay the Dragon" and will see as many more as I can possibly fit in my schedule. You can read about each film here.

I encourage you to get involved and go check out a film. And more importantly, secure your tickets before they sell out (and they will!) I'll meet you at the movies!
