The Ozark Foothills FilmFest, held at Independence Hall on the campus of the University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville, has announced the lineup for its 2015 festival, which is scheduled for April 3-11. Twenty-eight features, documentaries and shorts have been confirmed for the event, including "Northern Borders," starring Bruce Dern, "The Frontier," "Stomping Ground" (billed as “a scary relationship comedy about love and Bigfoot hunting"), "Billy Mize and the Bakersfield Sound" and "Misfire: The Rise and Fall of The Shooting Gallery," a crowd-funded documentary about the production company behind "Stand By Me" and "Sling Blade."

The festival will always be screening a rediscoverd and restored print of the silent film "Lonesome" (described by critic Jonathan Rosenbaum as a "classic example" of silent cinema's "perfection of expression"), with live musical accompaniment by the Doug Talley Quartet. Other screenings include "Eureka! The Art of Being," about Eureka Springs, and "Woke Up This Mornin' in the Arkansas Delta," a travel film directed by Benjamin Meade. Twenty filmmakers whose works are part of the schedule will be in attendance for Q&As.
