1st Annual Little Rock Horror Picture show a Thrilling Success

The 2012 Little Rock Horror Picture Show was a huge success in its inaugural year and we would not have been able to do it without the help of David E. Allen and Kismet Entertainment, the Little Rock Crown Plaza, North Point Ford, Moses Tucker, Whitewater Tavern, Union Bistro, CAV Productions, and  We were able to bring genre films from all over the globe and bring the Arkansas made, and Audience Award Winner, Madison County home for its southern premiere. The beautifully shot, Civil War Era, zombie film Exit Humanity won the Grand Jury Prize at this year’s fest and is a must see for everyone.  I’m very proud to say that next year we will be doing another Little Rock Horror Picture Show and it will be bigger and better than this year (also scarier)! We’ll bring in more filmmakers, more movies and more genres and have a few parties as well! Can’t wait to see you there!...

LRFF Golden Rock Winner Sebastian Junger to start free combat medical training for Reporters

It has been a devastating couple of years for reporters covering conflict. In Syria alone 8 local and international journalists have died. The photographer Joao Silva lost his legs in Afghanistan when he stepped on a land mine, and Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros were killed in Libya. We have told the story about the incredible risks faced by Mexican journalists covering the drug war, for the New York Times. It was after Tim Hetherington died that, Sebastian Junger his co-director on the LRFF Golden Rock winning documentary Restrepo, got the idea to help train journalists in the the kind of emergency medical treatment that can help save lives in those crucial first minutes after an injury takes place. Junger has said that he believes had the people around Tim at the time of the attack had known some basic combat medical procedures, that Tim might not have died. The workshops will all be free of charge as Junger explained to the Huffington Post “Most of the risks are being run by freelancers, People really in the meat grinder of the front lines are not, for the most part, insured or salaried network correspondents.” The workshops called Reporters Instructed in Saving Colleagues (RISC) will take place in New York, London, and Beirut. The training will be a valuable service to working journalists and a great tribute to Tim Hetherington. We are honored to be invited into the first session in NYC.   ,  ...
