The Little Rock Film Festival has scored a late coup, adding "Beasts of the Southern Wild," the Sundance Grand Jury prize winner, to its line-up. Set in a mythical Delta community that's preparing to weather a Katrina-esque storm, the film is a key addition to a festival that's focused on highlighting the best in Southern film. After winning Sundance and being rapturously received at Cannes, "Beasts" comes to Little Rock as the favorite to win the $10,000 Oxford American Eye on the South prize.

Another exciting late add: "Bernie," the latest from Richard Linklater. Starring Jack Black, Shirley MacLaine, Matthew McConaughey and the late Rick Dial. See the trailer on the jump.
