The Arkansas Cinema Society’s Filmland is a curated annual celebration of cinema with a mission to nurture and inspire filmmakers in Arkansas by exposing Arkansans to filmmakers and their art. This will be ACS’s 5th annual Filmland.
Inspired by Ebertfest in Champaign, Illinois, Filmland hosts acclaimed filmmakers (producers, writers, actors, directors, production designers, cinematographers, etc.) at every screening. With no cross programming (single venue, one screening at a time) and only 5-10 screenings in the program each year, ACS is proud of Filmland's unique, intimate, quality-over-quantity program.
As with every year, each screening will be followed by an in-depth Q+A conversation with the filmmakers.
Back this year: Filmland Filmmaking Workshops! Join us all weekend for opportunities to learn about every aspect of filmmaking from industry professionals.
ACS screens a collection of filmmaker-accompanied, cutting-edge, relevant, curated films and television shows, as well as a selection of Arkansas films--either made by an Arkansan or made in Arkansas.
Submissions for 2022 are now closed. Check back next Spring for submissions to Filmland: Arkansas 2023!
Filmland will take place at CALS Ron Robinson Theater in Downtown Little Rock, 100 River Market Ave.
Our priority is the safety of our guests, employees, and volunteers. We continue to monitor the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and will create appropriate safety precautions closer to the event.
