For a third year, the Winston-Salem-based RiverRun International Film Festival will present some festival films in Greensboro. The festival will show eight films at Red Cinemas, 1305 Battleground Ave., from April 8 to April 11. The expansion into Greensboro allows more Triad film fans to experience what the festival has to offer, organizers said. Among those films will be "Don't Get Trouble in Your Mind: The Carolina Chocolate Drops' Story." It will be shown at 5:30 p.m. April 11. Directed by John Whitehead, the 83-minute film documents the journey of three African-Americans - Greensboro's Rhiannon Giddens as well as Dom Flemons and Justin Robinson - from the hip-hop generation who found a mentor in 87-year-old fiddler Joe Thompson.
