The Riverrun Roadshow
N.C. Museum of History—Here's a novel promotional idea for film festivals, one that Asheville and Cucalorus might consider stealing: Winston-Salem's RiverRun International Film Festival, scheduled to take place April 23-28, is touring the state with The RiverRun Roadshow. Tonight, it'll be at the N.C. Museum of History to screen a program of hit shorts from last year and a highlight reel of this year's offerings. Two new films to look for at the fest itself are Durham filmmaker Josh Gibson's The Siamese Connection, which debuted at Full Frame last week, and Winston-Salem native Ramin Bahrani's Chop Shop, which received rave reviews at its theatrical release earlier this year. The festival will also feature two star attractions—well, make it one star: Bill Pullman is a strong actor, with credits ranging from David Lynch to Sandra Bullock, but he's no match for the one and only, extra-special, original Foxy Brown, Winston-Salem native and blaxploitation superstar Pam Grier. This free preview exhibition begins at 7 p.m. Visit or call (336) 724-1502 for more info. —David Fellerath
