The early endorsement of community leaders and industry pioneers reinforced our belief in our mission and gave us confidence that ACS will have the resources we need to make a real difference in our arts community. Arkansans have the talent and work ethic; they just need the opportunity. We believe there is an entire film industry waiting just beneath the surface in Arkansas.

Our goal is to nurture new and existing film talent within our state through increased exposure to filmmakers and their art.

Thank you for considering being a catalyst for this change. We are excited about our plans and cannot wait to share them with you. With your continued support, anything is possible.

Testimonials

"As a cinephile, I've wanted to be involved in a film community like ACS for a long time. It's been wonderful to watch ACS grow here in Arkansas. I'm so glad that I've been able to contribute to this amazing organization as a volunteer. From the Premiere event to film screenings throughout the year, I've had lots of opportunities to meet other film lovers while also having some exclusive access behind the scenes. It's been a lot of fun! I'm very much looking forward to helping ACS for years to come!"
"Being a fan of movies, I very much enjoy my time spent volunteering for ACS. I have made new friends and get to meet upcoming filmmakers. By helping present their story in film to the public I feel like I am helping send them off on an adventure of which most people only dream"
"I volunteer for ACS because I want to support the unique artistic community they're working to build here in Arkansas. When I work at ACS screenings, I see how movies bring together people from all different ages and walks of life. It's a bright spot of inspiration in this current political climate. Plus, it doesn't hurt that I get free admission to some of the coolest events in Little Rock!"
