WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Thousands of people from around the Southeast will soon head to Winston-Salem for one reason: a celebration of film.

The 2014 RiverRun International Film Festival kicks off Friday with a screening of To Be Takei at the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art at 7:30 p.m.

To Be Takei is just one of 145 films to be featured at the 16th annual RiverRun Festival. Film artists from 33 countries will display their work at RiverRun in hopes of winning awards and gaining recognition.

Film fanatics will not only get to enjoy film screenings, they'll also have the chance to meet and discuss film with some of the best in the business during several Q&A sessions at RiverRun.

Tickets are $12 for most screenings and $6 for matinee screenings before 5 p.m.
