6th Annual LRFF Announces 2012 Opening Night Film
2012 Little Rock Film Festival to Open with Dallas Cowboys Doc and Tailgate Party
The 6th Annual Little Rock Film Festival (LRFF) will open, for the first time ever, with a documentary feature: America’s Parking Lot, directed by Jonny Mars. Screening at 7:00 P.M. on May 29 at the Argenta Community Theater (ACT). A tailgate-themed opening night party will follow the screening at 9:30 P.M. at ACT. Whole Hog North Little Rock will provide barbecue for the opening night party. Filmmaker Mars will be in attendance and available for interviews.
2012 will be the first year the LRFF will open with a documentay. America’s Parking Lot, which premiered at SXSW, follows two Dallas Cowboys fans who “scramble to preserve their place in ‘America’s Parking Lot’” after the Cowboys move to the first billion dollar stadium. It tells Tiger and Cy’s story as rising ticket prices and shifting economic circumstances begin to threaten their “legendary” Gate 6 Tailgate Party. The Hollywood Reporter said it was “enough to make Stars Wars fans look lukewarm.”
LRFF Gold Pass holders will receive priority seating for the film screening followed by Silver and Bronze pass holders. The after party will be open to Gold Pass and Silver Pass holders and a limited number of tickets will be sold for $15. Passes may be purchased at the door or online HERE.
