LRFF Day Five Highlights

If you haven’t made it out for the Little Rock Film Festival this week, today is the day to check out some great films, meet with filmmakers, and party with us tonight down on the Junction Bridge. Last night we capped off a full day of star-studded films and live scores with the LRFF Hootenanny at WT Bubba’s – check out highlights from the whole day HERE!

Today Don’t Miss…

The Notorious Mr. Bout – After his 2008 arrest in Thailand, the career of international arms smuggler Viktor Bout came to an end. Veiled in obscurity of post-Soviet Russia, he built an empire of aerial delivery so vast he was called “the merchant of death.” In sharp contrast to that super-villain persona, was another Bout; a philosophical businessman who enjoyed travel, his work, his family and filming it all. The film’s director Tony Gerber will be in attendance. 6:00pm at The REP

Fort Tilden
Fort Tilden – Fort Tilden is New York City’s secluded seaside nirvana where Brooklyn’s hip millennial set flocks for unbridled indulgence. Amidst the vexing stagnation of quarter-life crises, Allie struggles to prepare for the Peace Corps, while Harper awaits checks from her father. Fort Tilden was the Grand Jury Prize Winner at SXSW this year and we’re delighted to have actress Clare McNulty and filmmakers Sarah Violet-Bliss and Charles Rodgers here to answer any of your questions afterwards. 8:30 pm at the CALS Ron Robinson Theater

manakamana
Manakamana – High above a jungle in Nepal, pilgrims make an ancient journey by cable car to worship Manakamana. Winner of the Golden Leopard: Cinema of the Present at the Locarno Film Festival. We are excited to have Pacho Velez, one of the directors, in attendance. 8:30pm at the Historic Arkansas Museum
