We're building a film community in Arkansas where film lovers can watch films, share ideas, connect with each other, and nurture the new and existing film talent within our state through increased exposure to filmmakers and their art.

We created the Arkansas Cinema Society as a way to bring films and filmmakers to the state of Arkansas. We are building a series into a state-wide network of theaters to screen films in places they may not usually take place. By bringing in filmmakers, we aim to educate and inspire up-and-coming filmmakers across the state. Eventually, we hope to include a grant program to help filmmakers get projects off the ground.”
"ART is the heart of any thriving community, city and state. A prosperous art culture enhances the quality of life for current residents and attracts new ones. Film is not just the art form of the 21st century, it is an art that has the potential to make a major economic impact. We believe that if we provide filmmakers an arena to exhibit their talents, and film enthusiasts a healthy diet of quality programming, we can inspire more Arkansans to watch and make more films. By supporting filmmakers, festivals, theaters and young people interested in filmmaking throughout the state, we hope to find new voices, build a statewide network, pool Arkansas’s resources and be an umbrella organization that feeds all things film. A rising tide lifts all boats.

“…the ACS endeavors to carry out an an ambitious statewide agenda of connecting people to film and filmmakers to each other with an overriding mission to inspire and nurture the future of homegrown filmmaking…

While very few native Arkansans command a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the ACS clearly believes there will always be a great river of untapped potential coursing through their oft-overlooked state.”

-Forbes

“…it’s not surprising that the lineup for the first event from the Arkansas Cinema Society, the ambitious new film nonprofit Jeff Nichols and fellow Little Rock native and filmmaker Kathryn Tucker co-founded and announced in March, includes actors, directors and producers who’ve successfully made movies big and small while maintaining a distinct voice or sensibility.”

“New film society brings a bit of Hollywood to Little Rock; Adam Driver among guests at premiere event… with deep roots in Arkansas is bringing the magic of Hollywood to Little Rock, with a goal of demystifying moviemaking.”

“Inspired by Richard Linklater's work for the last 32 years with the Austin Film Society, writer-director Jeff Nichols is launching a similar nonprofit cinephile organization, the Arkansas Cinema Society.”
