You’re free to chart your own course at the RiverRun International Film Festival, starting this Thursday and running through April 29 in Winston-Salem. But for those who find the list of more than 170 films and events daunting, we deliver this curated guide.

Each year we unleash our writers on the festival schedule, allowing them to screen whatever they like. Their choices reveal as much about the festival as it does about themselves.

Consider this small sample a list of suggestions from festival veterans as you tick off the ones you want to catch. You can learn more about these and all of the other films at the festival website,

Among Wolves

Becoming Who I Was

Chasing the Blues

The Desert Bride

Double Take: The Art of Elizabeth King
