Episode 113: Arkansas Cinema Society Is Rolling Out The Red Carpet For The Natural State

About the Show: 

We recently sat down with Kathryn Tucker, Executive Director, and Kody Ford, Director of Statewide Outreach and Education, from the Arkansas Cinema Society based in Little Rock, Arkansas, to discuss all things related to films and filmmaking in the Natural State.

Kathryn and Kody broke down the impact that films and filmmaking have on Arkansas and what has happened to make Northwest Arkansas a great place to make a movie.  There are so many jobs supplied by film production, from actors to extras to production assistants and electricians. 

While we are not Hollywood, we have many examples of other states like Texas and Georgia that have taken the time to cultivate the film and filmmaking culture. The sky is the limit for Arkansas. We have a wide variety of diverse locations that can create a backdrop for a variety of movies. 

The Arkansas Cinema Society is taking the time to educate and create more films in the future.  If you are interested in the industry or just want to learn more about what is happening right in your backyard, you need to listen to this episode. 

All of this and more on this episode of I am Northwest Arkansas.
