The Arkansas Cinema Society is a non-profit aimed at building the film community in Arkansas. The organization has recently expanded into Northwest Arkansas.

Watch as Program Director Kody Ford joins Good Day NWA with details on the Arkansas premier of the film.

In partnership with A24, the Bentonville Film Festival and Fayetteville Film Fest, the Arkansas Cinema Society will present ‘Minari,’ a Korean American drama set on a farm in Lincoln, in rural Washington County.

Starring Steven Yeun and directed by Lee Isaac Chung, the film is a semi-autobiographical depiction of Chung’s life as a Korean immigrant growing up in the rural South during the 1980s.

‘Minari’ earned ten nominations at the Critics Choice Awards, including Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Acting Ensemble.

The premiere presentation will include a pre-recorded Q&A with Chung and ACS co-founder & director Jeff Nichols.

The event will be hosted simultaneously online. Doors will open at the 112 Drive-In at 5:45 p.m., and the show starts at 7 p.m.
