What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

What is Filmland?

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.

Filmland hosts producers, writers, actors and directors, productions designers, cinematographers, etc. to help showcase their work. Screenings are followed by an in depth on-stage Q&A conversation led by ACS founder and filmmaker Jeff Nichols.

Every August, the ACS will screen a collection of filmmaker accompanied curated films and television shows as well as a selection of Arkansas films - either made by an Arkansan or made in Arkansas. Submissions for Filmland: Arkansas are open to both feature length short films as well as documentaries and television episodes. We make selections based on the content that is submitted every year - we don’t have any minimums or maximums. 

During Filmland, the ACS also hosts Happy Hour networking events as well as RAD after-parties to celebrate the growing film culture in Arkansas.
