We are super excited to announce the kickoff of our year round film program in collaboration with the Argenta Arts Foundation. The Argenta Film Series continues the expansion of the Little Rock Film Festival into one of the premiere year-round film advocacy organizations in the American South. The series will emphasize in-depth discussion with filmmakers and industry professionals from around the world while also highlighting Arkansas’ booming local filmmaking scene.
The inaugural Argenta Film Series event will feature the three top award-winning short films from the 2011 LRFF; Foot Soldier, Pillow and The Orderly. All of the films’ directors will be present for a question and answer period following the screenings. The filmmakers will discuss the rapid proliferation of filmmaking in Arkansas, and discuss the feature films each of them are now producing, following the success of their short projects. The kickoff event, as well as all AFS screenings, will cost $10 at the door. Admission is free for LRFF 2012 Gold pass holders.
