Low Key Arts joins with sponsors TLI Print and SQZBX Pizza and Brewery in presenting the twelfth annual Arkansas Shorts: A Night of Short Film festival on Saturday, January 5, 2019 at the historic Malco Theatre (817 Central Avenue) in downtown Hot Springs. The opening reception begins at 4:00 pm and will once again include complimentary social media portraits from exceptional photographer, Thomas Petillo, as well as theater concessions and cash bar.
Directed as it has been in recent memory by internationally acclaimed Hot Springs filmmaker Jen Gerber (on loan from HSDFF), Arkansas Shorts is the only festival of its kind in the state and showcases emerging talent from far and wide. It’s also a great way to celebrate a new year, Hot Springs style!
Similar to previous years, the festival features three blocks of short films presented over the course of the evening: an International block containing a grab bag of subjects from around the world; a North American block featuring high-profile, award-winning work from around the US and Canada; and, of course, the juried selection of Arkansas-made short films, including those produced in this year’s Inception to Projection filmmaking program, right here in Hot Springs. $20 Festival Pass tickets good for all 3 blocks and entry to a SQZBX after party are on sale now from Prekindle.com and can be found by simply going there and searching for “Arkansas Shorts”. Individual screening tickets ($10 each) will be made available in mid-December. For more info please email firstname.lastname@example.org
