The Lawrence Arts Center is accepting submissions for the second annual Free State Film Festival, planned for April 26-28.
Entries are being accepted through March 1 at freestatefilmfest.com.
The weekend-long festival aims to create “dialogue between local and national artists and a broad spectrum of audiences through the shared experience of thought provoking cinema,” according to an Arts Center announcement.
The event celebrates not only film, but its relationship to other art forms, such as visual and music, in an effort to reflect Lawrence’s unique culture. The 2013 festival will include feature films, short films, panel discussions, live music performances, an experimental film and music video showcase, and a revival of the multimedia stage production “On Screen Offspring,” featuring new, original short plays by area filmmakers.
