AETN's 'LOUPE' to be screened at Eureka Springs Indie Film Fest Jan. 25

Independent films produced as part of the Arkansas Educational Television Network's (AETN) art initiative LOUPE have been named as official selections of the Eureka Springs Indie Film Fest. LOUPE films will be screened at the festival Saturday, Jan. 25, at 11:55 a.m. at The Eureka Springs City Auditorium, 32 South Main Street.

Designed to highlight the arts and artists throughout Arkansas, LOUPE is supported in part by a Cultural Regional Art Grant from the Arkansas Arts Council, an agency of the Department of Arkansas Heritage.

The LOUPE initiative is intended to build an arts and culture collection by curating a gallery of information, visuals and events from across Arkansas. A variety of special "artisodes" will be presented alongside articles, events and educational resources on aetn.org/loupe, an engaging aggregate website highlighting various topics related to arts and culture in Arkansas.

"LOUPE" films to be featured in the festival include:
