Friday To-Do: 'Lost Dogs'

7 p.m., Market Street Cinema.

For those eager to jump into the Little Rock Film Fest, here's an early preview of what's likely an early favorite to win the Charles B. Pierce “Made in Arkansas” Award. On Friday and Saturday (and Thursday for folks in Conway), “Lost Dogs,” a two-and-a-half-years-in-the-making film noir set largely in Arkansas, celebrates its debut. Hud Dunlap, 35, who works at the Faulkner County Library when he's not making movies, wrote, directed, edited and did just about every other job imaginable in the production. He says the feature-length black-and-white film was inspired by the French New Wave. He characterizes it as a crime drama that follows three characters, whose paths, he explains cryptically with an “I don't want to spoil the plot” preface, “cross in a rather unique way.” From the trailer (which you can see on Rock Candy), murder looks to play a role. The film, which Dunlap says will cost him somewhere in the neighborhood of $50,000 once it's all said and done, starts its preview weekend at Staples Auditorium at Hendrix College at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, then moves to Market Street Cinema for screenings at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. At 9 p.m. on Friday for $7, there'll be an after-party featuring Rockst*r Jones, who plays a bit role in the film and provides music for the soundtrack, and the new jazz act Hyde and Hyde vs. The Spies, which includes most of the members of The Little Rock Jazz Quintet. DJ Discipline will spin, too. And Dunlap will project footage shot especially for the party onto big screens.
