  • "Ann Richards' Texas" screens tonight at the opening of the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival.
Just a reminder, in case you missed Lindsey Millar's story this week: The Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival gets rolling tonight at The Arlington Hotel, with a champagne and popcorn reception at 6 p.m. and screenings of the short film "Debutante Hunters" and "Ann Richards' Texas."

After the screenings, there will be a panel discussion with the filmmaker and native Arkansan Eric Wilson, Democratic Party of Arkansas Executive Director Dawne Vandiver, conservative radio commentator and Republican strategist Bill Vickery and Treasurer of the Democratic Party of Arkansas and Hot Springs City Councilwoman Karen Garcia.

Opening night tickets are $5.

From Millar's story:

"Ann Richards' Texas"
7:15 p.m. Friday, Oct. 12

"This documentary profile of the Texas governor was produced largely by Arkansans, including co-director Jack Lofton, director of photography Gabe Mayhan and executive producer Susan Altrui. Worth seeing if only to remember a time when a state that's most recently elected Rick Perry and George W. Bush as governor was led by a liberal icon."

Watch the trailer for "Ann Richards' Texas" after the jump.
