Lights, Cameras, Action
Local LGBTQ Film Festival Takes Off

Beginning July 30 - August 2, the LGBT film festival, Kaleidoscope, begins its inaugural premiere
according to its producers, The Film Society of Little Rock. The entities web page states that the Film Society of Little Rock is a grassroots, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed by a small group of filmmakers and film enthusiasts.  
They are focused on expansion of the creative community in Arkansas by providing year round opportunities to educate, entertain, and exhibit local, national, and international filmmakers and their works. Kaleidoscope is designed to celebrate the diversity of the LGBT community and filmmakers by presenting poignant and thought-provoking films documenting LGBT lives truthfully and with respect. Kaleidoscope celebrates the power of film to transform lives and opinions of those both inside and outside the LGBT community through the universal medium of the cinema. All of this is fabulous planning but of course COP 24/7 has a few questions about all of this? Such as "how were these films chosen and why?" or perhaps, "just when was all this planning taking place and where was the information on that planning? Of course, we've always got questions, because that what we do at COP 24/7. We'll see if there are any answers...stay tuned!!
