A new award was presented at the 2013 Little Rock Film Festival Arkansas Times Awards Gala. The Heifer Social Impact Award recognized a film that best promotes awareness and advocacy of global problems and solutions. The funding for the award came from the National Park Service through the Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site.
The award was actually presented first on Saturday night at an event sponsored by Heifer and presented again at the Sunday evening gala. The award went to These Birds Walk which was directed by Omar Mullick and Bassam Tariq.
The World Shorts Award went to Amy Seimetz’s “When We Lived in Miami.” It was shown in the “Sore Times” block of films.
