The Ozark Foothills FilmFest is an eclectic celebration of the cinema arts that takes place each spring in the rolling foothills of the Arkansas Ozarks. It is one of extremely few film festivals taking place in a truly rural community (Batesville, Arkansas; population 10,000). The festival screens narrative and documentary films of all lengths, as well as curated foreign language films and rediscovered American classics. The festival has received annual funding from the National Endowment for the Arts for thirteen consecutive years and was twice honored with Film Festival Grants from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The 15th annual Ozark Foothills FilmFest takes place April 1-2 and April 8-9, 2016.
