Little Rock is home to one of the most important Civil Rights events in American History, the 1957 Crisis at Central High.
As a part of our year round programming schedule, The Little Rock Film Festival is proud to present the Reel Civil Rights Film Festival (RCRFF)– in proud partnership with the Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site and Parks Department. The festival was originally founded by Spirit Trickey, daughter of one of the Little Rock Nine. The dates of the festival are centered around the anniversary of the desegregation crisis at Little Rock Central High that took place on September 25th, 1997.
The RCRFF is a yearly event from the LRFF that examines through film the most important civil and human rights events of the past and of today.
