Low Key Arts' 16th annual Arkansas Shorts Short Film Festival will take place Friday, Saturday and Sunday January 6-8, 2023, at the historic Malco Theatre.


In 2022, Arkansas Shorts expanded - for the first time in its history - from one night to two full days of short films, workshops and parties! While the program consisted primarily of work from Arkansas filmmakers, the festival also featured films from across the country and around the world. 

2022 has been the busiest year to date for Low Key Arts’ popular hands-on filmmaking program and Arkansas Shorts 2023 will be the showcase for all that incredible work.

“Arkansas Shorts has been bursting at the seams the past few years as we have seen such growth and enthusiasm from our regional filmmakers,” said Film Program Director, Jen Gerber. “It seems the time spent in quarantine the past two years has resulted in a tremendous outpouring of creative energy, therefore we decided this was the year to expand from a one night event into a weekend of screenings.” 

During this eventful weekend, Arkansas Shorts 2023 will feature aspects of the Inception to Projection program with robust filmmaking workshops to help encourage, inspire and challenge filmmakers of every level.
