    This festival really cares about Arkansas filmmakers and provides them with a platform to reach engaging audiences. This year they adapted so that they could still showcase films during a pandemic and were extremely successful in being able to reach a large audience. Thank you Arkansas Shorts and Low Key Arts!

  • 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!
