A little bit of Sundance comes to Richmond

The Richmond Moving Image Co-Op is known for the quality of the films that they show. One of their projects, “Flicker,” is a wonderful opportunity for film buffs to view local filmmakers and for the filmmakers themselves to have a captive audience. But today, March 31, marks the beginning of the 10th Annual James River Film Festival, which is a showing of independent films. The festival will run for seven days, starting today to April 6. Every well-known venue in Richmond is taking part in this great event.
