The "Festival Genius," which will subsequently be known on this blog as the Gene, is in its first year, serving to “celebrate audience award winners from across the Top 50 US and Canadian film festivals.”
Little Rock Film Festival's most recent lineup is in full force, with "Waiting for Superman," "Louder Than a Bomb," "happythankyoumoreplease" and "Winter's Bone" in shortlist as well.
