From "The Room"

One big scheduling note for tonight: "(500) Days of Summer," originally scheduled for tonight, and still listed that way in our print schedule, is now showing Saturday at 7 p.m. at Market Street.

Also, check out, on our home page, a video of co-founder and organizer Brent Renaud running through some of the highlights of the fest. With loads of video clips, including one that the image above came from in "The Room."

If I can get my work done, I'm planning on going to the "Arkansas Shorts Program #1" tonight at 6 p.m., catching "Slumberland" at 7:45 and then going to the after-party at the Peabody, where Velvet Kente and Korto Momolu will be doing their thing.

Organizers tell me they'll be additional "secret" parties announced exclusively through the LRFF Twitter feed. Collective groans for technology.

Sometime tonight or tomorrow, Derek Jenkins is gonna be joining in. We'll be live-covering the fest all weekend.

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
