Mark your calendar: Next up for the monthly Arkansas Times Film Series on Friday, March 20 at Ron Robinson Theater: A special presentation of short films and music videos from Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Benh Zeitlen and others from Court 13, the film and arts collective that Zeitlen co-founded in college and is now based in New Orleans. 

We're screening three of Zeitlen's short films, including "Glory at Sea," the 25-minute short film he made right before "Beasts of the Southern Wild" in post-Katrina south Louisiana. It was a SXSW award-winner in 2008. Plus, two shorts from another Court 13 cofounder, Ray Tintori, including "Death of a Tin Man," which won an honorable mention at Sundance. AND music videos from MGMT and Big Freedia directed by Tintori and others. 

Court 13's Casey Coleman and Nathan Harrison will be there for a post-screening Q&A on the films and what Court 13's all about. 

Coleman heads up Court 13 Arts and is currently producing "¡Brimstone & Glory!," a documentary about fireworks and the cosmos by friend of the Times Viktor Jakovleski (it's going to be awesome). Harrison is a producer for Court 13 and is currently heading up "a vast casting operation in South Louisiana and beyond." Both Coleman and Harrison worked on "Beasts."

Tickets are $5. Screening starts at 7 p.m.
