RiverRun will celebrate the 200th anniversary of Mexican independence and the centennial of the Mexican Revolution with a series of films from that country, including “Like Water for Chocolate,” “Y Tu Mama Tambien” and the Bunuel classic “Los Olvidados.

Bogdanovich will receive the festival’s Master of Cinema award following a screening of his film “Paper Moon.” Green will get the Emerging Master award after the screening of his “George Washington,” which was shot in and around Winston-Salem. His film “Pineapple Express” also will screen during the festival, which covers two weekends this year for the first time.

Kevin Kline comedy “The Extra Man” will open the 2010 RiverRun International Film Festival in Winston-Salem, N.C., and the festival will feature a spotlight on Mexican cinema and special awards for filmmakers Peter Bogdanovich and David Gordon Green.

The festival opens on April 15 and will unspool 51 feature films and 70-plus short films from 33 countries before it wraps on April 25.

In addition to “Extra Man,” directed by Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini, “Mao’s Last Dancer,” directed by Bruce Beresford, will be the Centerpiece Premiere, and Russian musical “Hipsters” will unspool on closing night.
