Lodging and a travel stipend are provided.

 

SHORT FILM SHOWCASES. Narrative, documentary, animated, or experimental films less than forty minutes. Several showcases are typically scheduled during the festival. Filmmakers are provided the opportunity to present and discuss their films. Special consideration is given to filmmakers from Arkansas and neighboring states.
