Guest programmer, critic and filmmaker Robert Greene, has put together a lineup of films from around the World that are pushing the boundaries of the documentary form. Selections from the program include the Sundance Jury Prize Winner The Overnighters, and Manakamana, the latest film out of the Harvard Sensory Ethnography lab that produced last year’s Leviathan.

LRFF2014 Introduces Student Pass for $75 (Half price Silver Pass)

LRFF2014 Introduces Student Pass for $75 (Half price Silver Pass)

This year the Little Rock Film Festival is offering current college students a special ‘Student Pass‘ which is equivalent to the LRFF Silver Pass (Access to all Screenings, Panels and Parties.) at just $75. “College students have always been a key part of our audience and volunteer support since the very first year and we want to recognize that and also acknowledge the fact that most college students are always on a tight personal budget.” – Veronica Fernandes, LRFF Marketing Director For $75 a student gets a Silver Pass which normally would cost $150. That’s a weeks worth of more than 100 films, that translates into about $12.50 per day — an amount you would normally pay for a ticket at a first-run commercial theater. Divide that by the number of screenings at the festival, the various workshops and panels they can attend through the week and the high networking opportunities they get by interacting with filmmakers and other volunteers and and it’s clear that the Silver Pass offers good entertainment value for any college student. Passes will be available for pickup at the box office at the new state-of-the-art Ron Robinson Theater in downtown Little Rock. Be sure to carry your valid student I.D in person, to pick up your Student Pass at the box office. The Ron Robinson Theater is at 1 Pulaski Way, inside Arcade Building across from Little Rock’s River Market. (Dates for when the box office will be open to pick up your pass – TBD) BUY YOUR STUDENT PASS HERE....
