Filmmakers from around the country are gathering in Little Rock this week to attend the Little Rock Film Festival. The success of the festival, now in its seventh year has grown into a bellwether of the film scene around the state.

As KUAR’s Chris Hickey explains, local filmmakers have entered a new era, eschewing the Hollywood model and embracing a localized, independent and regional approach as more talented storytellers choose to stay in Arkansas and develop the resources they need.
