Film goers will be celebrating in high style as celebrities descend upon Hot Springs October 7-16!  Join Louis Gossett Jr, Beau Bridges, Barry Bostwick, Ed Asner for amazing documentaries and festivities.  Seriously!

The Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival (HSDFF) is the oldest non-fiction festival in North America and an Academy-qualifying festival in the category of Documentary Short Subject. Yes, you get to vote on films, interact with actors, producers and directors and watch films from morning until late at night.  Consider dressing the part for a raucous screening of the Rocky Horror Picture Show (featuring Barry Bostwick in person, oh my!)

23rd Annual Documentary Film Festival is Hot Springs, AR Treasure

September 28th, 2014 by Kristie Rosset

Hot Springs AR Documentary Film FestivalI love to go to the movies. It’s a treat I treasure anytime I am able to go see a film I’ve looked forward to watching. Of course, popcorn and soda go along with the outing. So, each year when the Documentary Film Festival comes to town, Ray and I try to take some time off to see some of the fabulous films that are featured.

This year the Festival takes place Oct. 10-19 at the Arlington Hotel and Low Key Arts. The breadth of the international films includes an amazing lineup. What attracts me the most in watching the documentaries are the many subjects covered in the films. Last year the selection was great; I feel this year’s films may be even better.

Opening Night, Oct. 10, features “Glen Campbell…I’ll be Me” and looks to be an amazing evening for film aficionados. Some of the schedule for the evening includes a screening of the movie at 6:15 p.m. followed by a Q&A with Director and Producer James Keach, Producer Trevor Albert along with some members of the Campbell family including Campbell’s wife Kim and children Ashley, Cal and Shannon. Other events are also scheduled after the Q&A. For more information, a schedule and ticket information go online to www.hsdff.org.

The entire schedule of films is not on the website yet, but will be there soon. The featured documentaries this year include:
“Satellite Beach”
“The Story of the Rhinestone Cowboy”
“Meet the Patels”
“An Honest Liar”
“Stray Dog”
“George Takei”

One of my favorite events to attend in the fall is the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival. I’m looking forward to the excitement of seeing some great documentaries this year. We love to have out-of-town guests who come to the Film Festival to also stay with us at the Inn. We have a great place to retreat to during the day or after the films in the evening.

Lookout Point is situated on Lake Hamilton with each of our unique rooms sharing a view of the lake. The cooler air is inviting and our gardens and labyrinth are great places to sit, be still and enjoy the great weather. Our beds are luxurious with fabulous linens and our breakfasts are superb. Make reservations online or give us a call at 501.525.6155 and we’ll help you plan a great week or weekend at the Documentary Film Festival.

October 4th, 2012 by Kristie Rosset

One of the delights of living in or visiting  Hot Springs in October is the annual Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival.

Hot Springs Film Festival 2012

This year the Festival had some challenges from a spring storm that damaged the historic Malco Theatre, where the festival takes place. But the Festival lives on and will be a fun and exciting part of fall in Hot Springs October 12-21.

We are proud to be a sponsor of the festival and would love to have you stay at Lookout Point for the multicultural and intergenerational festival. If you’ve had the privilege of attending the Festival in the past or you’ve never attended, this would be a wonderful year to plan a fall excursion to Hot Springs.

The list of films and the full Festival schedule will be posted soon.
