2008 Rewind: L for Little Rock Film Fest

Posted By on Tue, Dec 23, 2008 at 2:43 PM


From 'War Eagle, Arkansas'

Little Rock Film Fest. In its second year, the festival didn’t score the preview screenings or breadth of international fare it did in its inaugural run, but it still hosted an impressive line-up, particularly in terms of filmmakers in attendance. Charles B. Pierce, the cult favorite and Arkansas native, got feted with a retrospective and honored as the namesake for the festival’s best in Arkansas prize. “War Eagle, Arkansas,” the honest and funny portrait of small town life in the Ozarks, deservedly took home the inaugural award. Props, too, to the Hot Springs Documentary Film Fest for scoring names like Albert Maysles and MC Frontalot and offering, as usual, a rich and diverse line-up.
