"Reel Rural: Rural America in Independent Film" will present the work of seven filmmakers whose films provide authentic portrayals of life in rural America. Four of the filmmakers will attend to conduct post-screening Q&As and participate in a free panel discussion focusing on how the independent film genre is uniquely positioned to depict regional mores and points of view and the challenges in getting such films to audiences in the regions they seek to represent.

The hour long panel discussion will be followed by an audience Q&A and a meet-and-greet with the participating panelists. Screenings of the films will take place throughout the day at the University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville, beginning at 12:15.
