Each year the Little Rock Film Festival brings as many as 50 filmmakers and industry professionals from around the World to Little Rock for in-depth discussions on their craft and the business of filmmaking. On Tuesday, October 25, we will be holding a fundraiser to raise money for filmmaker flights and expenses. We are proud to be partnering with Feedasoldier.com for this joint fundraiser. Feedasoldier.com is a new initiative centered around the film The Unknown Citizen Soldier, by Arkansas filmmaker Neil Osam. FeedASoldier’s mission is simple: show our appreciation to our troops . . . anytime, anywhere. Many US citizens make it commonplace to buy a soldier’s meal or beverage when given the chance – a simple gesture to say ‘thank you’ for their service and sacrifice for our country. FeedASoldier’s goal is to simply make this even more commonplace by raising awareness to spearhead a national campaign. For more information click...
