DE LO MIO

The RiverRun International Film Festival which was held virtually this year in light of COVID-19 and the cancellation of the festival announced its 2020 Jury Award Winners. The top prizes went to De Lo Mio directed by Diana Peralta for Best Film; and I Am Not Alone directed by Garin Hovannisian won Best Documentary Feature.

“One of the first things we decided after we wrapped our heads around not having a festival this year was that we should reach out to our jury members and see if they would still be able to take part virtually, given the new situation everyone was facing,” said Mary Dossinger, Program Manager for the RiverRun International Film Festival. “We had incredible jurors from all areas of the film community set to come to Winston-Salem and we very much wanted to still highlight the incredible work of our filmmakers in some way. Almost all of the jurors responded with a resounding yes and we got to work sending them the films and introducing them to one another. We are so thankful to them for being a part of RiverRun 2020 and hope to still get them all to our Festival in the future.”
