The Seedling Film Association, a non-profit located in Northwest Arkansas, recently announced that the 2nd Annual Offshoot Film Fest will be held in Fayetteville Oct. 27-30.
SFA is accepting submissions for narrative features, documentaries, short films, animation, student films, low budget/low tech productions and films with Arkansas connections.
Films submitted in the Arkansas connection category by July 14 will be entered free, according to Jason Suel, SFA executive director.
Last year, the burgeoning festival screened 50 films from nine countries. SFA has also partnered with the Walton Arts Center for its Artosphere festival, which wrapped up recently, and with Downtown Bentonville Inc.'s ArtsFest.
