Hot Springs Festival: Movies and Music


Parties. Popcorn. Music. All this and more is waiting at the 24th Annual Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival. The events will be held Oct. 9-18 at the historic Arlington Resort Hotel & Spa in Hot Springs.

The films chronicle such stories as the life of music legend and civil rights icon Mavis Staples, Hot Springs’ significant role in the history of baseball, and the inspiring comeback of Iditarod champion Lance Mackey. Festival-goers can also enjoy parties and live music nightly.
