BENTONVILLE – June 6, 2022 /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Arkansas Cinema Society (ACS) returns to Thaden School in Bentonville on Friday, June 10th for an Arkansas Filmmaker Spotlight on Fort Smith documentarian Clay Pruitt with a special presentation of his film, The 24, about the 24 Hours of Horseshoe Hell endurance rock climbing competition that takes place annually in Jasper.

On June 10, doors open for a happy hour mixer with complimentary beverages at 6 p.m. The film starts at 7 p.m. followed by a Q+A with the filmmaker.

Admission is free but registration will be required. Get tickets here.

ACS Executive Director Kathryn Tucker is excited to explore this genre of filmmaking.

“Our goal at ACS is to grow and promote filmmaking in the Natural State and it wouldn’t be right to do it without including all the incredible outdoor and adventure films that take place in our state and beyond,” she said. “Kicking this off with Clay Pruitt’s film The 24 is the best way to do it. Clay is a fantastic filmmaker and all-around great guy. We are grateful to have a partner in LIVSN Designs, whose foundation is rooted in the development of lifelong outdoor enthusiasts here. We plan to continue screening more outdoor and recreation films in the future.”

LIVSN Brand Marketing Manager Kelsey Ferguson is an avid fan of both film and the outdoors, and she’s thrilled to bring these passions together.

“Our region continues to invest in building the outdoor recreation sector, so cultivating a community that seeks out and supports outdoor and adventure-focused filmmakers is of paramount importance,” she said.
