Little Rock Film Festival Schedule 

Screenings, excluding the opening night film, are $5 suggested donation per film. A $25 pass grants priority access to all screenings (excluding the opening night film), panel discussions and some events. Or, for $50, festival goers can purchase a special party pass that affords access to all screenings and special events, including nightly parties where complimentary food and drink will be provided, but excluding the gala. Or a $200 VIP pass, available in limited number, provides the same access as the party pass, but with priority seating, access to the filmmaker lounge and the Arkansas Times-sponsored gala. Individual tickets to the opening night film, opening night after party, fashion show and closing night gala are also available, all via littlerockfilmfestival.org.
