Who wants to check out 55 new films in five days in Fayetteville this fall?
You’ll get a chance at this year’s Fayetteville Film Festival, the upcoming event planned for Sept. 6-10 in downtown Fayetteville.
The festival, which began in 2010 as the Offshoot Film Festival but decided to rebrand in 2016, this week announced the lineup of films for its seventh installment this year.
Four feature-length documentaries are included in the lineup this year as well, including local filmmaker Larry Foley’s The First Boys of Spring about the history of Major League Baseball’s spring training in Hot Springs from 1886-1955.
The festival also includes more than 40 short films, including several live action, animated, and documentary selections.
There’s also a music video category which will feature a few local local artists, including Barrett Baber, and Smokey and the Mirror, and Hot Springs-based band, Ghost Bones.
The festival will take place primarily at the UA’s Global Campus and the The Pryor Center for Arkansas Oral and Visual History next door, and in addition to the films, will include workshops, and “talkback” events and question-and-answer sessions with the filmmakers.
Full festival passes are $40, and are now on sale at fayettevillefilmfest.org. Tickets to individual events are also on sale.
The full lineup of films for this year’s festival is below.
