‘Czech’ Out This Film Festival

If you’re still not sure what to do this weekend, it’s time to ‘Czech’ out the Czech That Film Festival. While going to the movies can cost you $10 a pop, this two-day event is completely free and will feature five different films.

The festival has been going on since 2012, but this is the first time it will take place in Arkansas — hosted in the Ron Robison Theater in Little Rock.

Members of the Arkansas Economic Development Commission are excited about what hosting this event says about Little Rock culture. 

“Things in Little Rock and Arkansas, I can see a big difference between when I arrived 18 years ago and now. There are more things to do and a growing interest in culture and the city is becoming more vibrant,” said Lenka Horakova, the honorary consul of the Czech Republic in Arkansas and AEDC’s business development director for Europe.

Don’t worry if you can’t speak Czech — all the films will include English subtitles. The festival is taking place today and tomorrow, but for a full schedule you can visit the festival’s website here.

Although the event is free, attendees must reserve tickets through Eventbrite.

The film industry is booming in Arkansas and there are 30 festivals that take place in the state each year. The Bentonville Film Festival recently drew an estimated 35,000 attendees.
