We’re excited to announce that, for the first time in the nine-year history of Student Selects and the Little Rock Film Festival, high school student filmmakers will be part of the “Made in Arkansas” competition!
Three films entered in the Student Selects competition - “Loser,” “The Pop N’ Lock,” “Pyro” and “Go to the Ball With Me, Jenny” — will screen during the 2015 Little Rock Film Festival alongside the best filmmakers in Arkansas. The Little Rock Film Festival will be held May 11-17.
AETN and the Student Selects team are extremely proud of these entries and grateful for the opportunity to bring an even greater audience to such talented young filmmakers and actors.
