Wednesday To-Do: Little Rock Film Festival Opening Night

5:30 p.m., various locations.

For the last three years, the Little Rock Film Festival organizers have proven they know well that parties make for a festival's success just as much as the films themselves. They're always a high time and yet another reason to support the local festival by investing in a V.I.P. pass. Opening night sees Cajun's Wharf opening up at 5:30 p.m. for pre-screening food and drinks before the crowds shuffle it down the street to Riverdale Cinema at 7 p.m. for “Winter's Bone,” the much-anticipated film that opens the festival after winning the Grand Jury and Screenwriting awards at Sundance. The festival then teams up with Oxford American in the Terry House Mansion for the opening night after-party at 9 p.m. with music by a terrific array of locals in pop craftsman Bryan Frazier, bluegrass outfit Runaway Planet, throwback country trio Mandy McBryde & The Chosen Few and DJ extraordinaire g-force. One part homecoming for the festival, one part pep rally for the remaining three days, festival organizers expect this to be the best opening night yet.
