the Low Key Arts, “Inception to Projection” program, and the best of this years submissions. Expect to see
shorts from professionals and beginners alike. Genres include documentary, narrative,
experimental and music video.
An opening reception starts at 6 with
films starting at 7. Admission is $7 with proceeds going to future Low Key Arts
events such as The Valley of the Vapors Independent Music Festival and the Hot
Water Hills Music and Arts Festival.
The Malco Theatre, home of the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival, was recently listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  Built in 1935, the Art Deco style building occupies a site that has been a source of entertainment since the 1870’s, according to the National Register nomination. 


The Hot Springs Documentary Film Institute now uses the building as their headquarters. The theatre is located at 817 Central Ave.
