2020 marks the lucky thirteenth year of Arkansas Shorts - A Night of Short Film! To celebrate, we're extending the limit on film running times and will now accept films up to 20 minutes in length! Arkansas Shorts is an annual event showcasing short films in 3 categories: Those made by Natives and current residents of Arkansas; by North American Filmmakers; and by International filmmakers. Additionally, Arkansas Shorts is a showcase for the work produced in Low Key Arts' filmmaking workshop, Inception to Projection, during the prior year. These often include work by a wide variety of local filmmakers, ranging from teens to seniors. Arkansas Shorts proudly takes place in downtown Hot Springs at the historic Malco Theatre.

Jury Selection Prize and an Audience Choice Award are presented every year.

    I wasn't able to attend the screening unfortunately but Jen and Derek at Arkansas Shorts were both very warm and supportive and clear in their communication. And the venue looked great, too. Hopefully we'll screen there again, and I'll definitely go!
