Bentonville's Potlikker Film Fest: Food! Beer! Bluegrass! Films, too!

The Southern Foodways Alliance, a non-profit based at Ole Miss' Center for the Study of Southern Culture that studies the culture of food in the South, is collaborating with chef Matt McClure (21c Museum Hotel) to host the Bentonville Potlikker Film Festival on Saturday, Aug. 9. The celebration of Southern cooking will include food-films by Joe York, "Fish Ribs in Little Rock," about the Lassis Inn, and "Ovens are for Pies," about McClard's Barbecue, will feed the mind and Arkansas chefs McClure, Matt Bell (South on Main) and Travis McConnell (Butcher and Public), using groceries from Arkansas growers Falling Sky Farm, Armstead Mountain Farm, Cedar Creek Farms and Rios Family Farm will feed the bellies. 

York, you may remember, made the films about Dallas Bump ("Bump") and Violet Hensley ("74 Fiddles") for the Arkansas Made Film Living Treasure Series. Foodies know and love the chefs. Ozark Beer Co. and Mountain Valley Spring Water will make sure no one goes thirsty. Foley's Van bluegrass will make sure everyone is merry. For $75 (includes everything), you can't go wrong, especially since you can go to Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art pre-festival (here's what's happening at CBMAA that day).

The Southern Foodways Alliance has held Potlikker film fests across the South since 2007; this is a first for Arkansas. The festival will run from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at 21c Museum's restaurant and bar The Hive (200 NE A St., Bentonville). You can purchase tickets here.
