2021 RiverRun International Film Festival
… to present online and drive through screenings in May
The RiverRun International Film Festival will run May 6-16, featuring more than 100 screenings virtually and at drive-ins.
RiverRun, based in Winston-Salem, is an Academy Award-qualifying festival in two categories: Documentary Short and Animated Short. This is the festival’s 23rd season.
“We were disappointed to have to cancel the 2020 festival, which would have taken place near the onset of the pandemic early last April,” RiverRun Executive Director Rob Davis said in a press release. “We had several highly successful online and drive-in screenings during the summer and fall. Based on those successes, we are confident that we will be able to offer the film festival in May using online and drive-in screenings only.”
Davis said films under consideration for the festival “will appeal to a broad range of people and will reflect the artistry of many rising filmmakers.”
