The Arkansas Cinema Society’s Filmland is a curated annual celebration of cinema with a mission to nurture and inspire filmmakers in Arkansas by exposing Arkansans to filmmakers and their art. Filmland 2023 will be held Oct. 4-8, 2023 at the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts (AMFA).
Over the last five years, Filmland has been honored to host award-winning filmmakers like actors Jessica Chastain, Joel Edgerton, Will Forte, Ted Danson, David Arquette, and ACS board member Mary Steenburgen along with directors including Chloé Zhao, Richard Linklater, David Lowery, Neil LaBute, David Gordon Green, and Jeff Nichols; and producers such as Evan Hayes, Jayme Lemons, Christina McLarty Arquette, Fred Berger, and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones.
Filmland has showcased award-winning films such as Nomadland, The Eyes of Tammy Faye, and Free Solo from top festivals like Sundance, Telluride, Toronto, and Venice before they had a theatrical release in Arkansas.
Each screening features a Q+A moderated by ACS Co-Founder Jeff Nichols, board members, or staff and every night wraps with a party for filmmakers and attendees.
Stay tuned to see what’s in store for Filmland 2023!
