Two MFA Student films were Selected for the RiverRun International Film Festival

The RiverRun International Film Festival, a 501(c)3 non-profit, is a regional event based in Winston-Salem and is one of the premier film festivals in the southeastern United States. The 13th annual RiverRun will be held April 13-22, 2012.  During the run of the 10 day Festival, RiverRun creates an inspired environment in downtown Winston-Salem featuring a dynamic combination of talent, film-loving audiences and industry heavyweights.

MFA candidate Adrienne Ostberg’s short documentary “A New Life” featuring a local program in Winston-Salem at a minimum security prison which pairs inmates with puppies from the Humane Society has been chosen as an official selection for the RiverRun International Film Festival.

MFA candidate James Gould’s film “Songs of a Heart” was also selected for the RiverRun International Film Festival. “Songs of a Heart” is a documentary exploring the unlikely relationship between Rev. Daniel W. Jones, his wife Geraldine, and their newly appointed caregiver Annie Bell Ellington.
