RiverRun and COVID-19

Every year at RiverRun we prioritize the health and safety of our attendees, volunteers, and staff.  This year is no different, though we are being more vigilant as we monitor the Coronavirus situation.  We are monitoring the recommendations from local, state, and national health authorities and working with our venues to insure recommended sanitation practices are followed.   We are also monitoring other film festivals around the country from New York to Los Angeles occurring just before, during, or after RiverRun.  At this point, all other festivals are proceeding while monitoring the situation, and that is our plan at RiverRun.  In the meantime, we urge everyone to follow the suggested guidelines regarding hand washing, covering mouth when coughing, not touching your face, and staying home when sick.  We are an adaptable festival and will make changes as needed depending on the evolving situation.  For further resources, please consult:
