Dan Anderson ( Festival Director) said several of this year’s films are standouts, including “The Natural State of America,” being shown at 7 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. this Friday in the Malco. It’s a home-grown product and Anderson calls it “one of my all-time, top Arkansas films.” Also on opening night, at 9 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. in the Malco, is the world premiere of “Exotic World and the Burlesque Revival,” which will be followed at 11 p.m. with a performance by Foul Play Cabaret, a Hot Springs burlesque troupe.

Another special event will be Sunday at noon during the screening of the film “Patriot Guard Riders”
