Arkansas Money & Politics: Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival Moves Archives to UA

The Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival is moving its archives to the University of Arkansas Libraries’ Special Collections.

The archives — nearly 300 linear feet — are a significant addition to Special Collections’ extensive film holdings on 20th-century art, culture, environmentalism and politics.

“The Hot Springs Documentary Film Institute’s staff and board of directors feel very privileged to have our cherished archives join the distinguished Special Collections at the University of Arkansas, and are thrilled that the ever-evolving historical records of the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival will be protected for current and future generations,” said Don Gooch, chair of the institute’s Board of Directors.

“We look forward to seeing them shared with film lovers, students, scholars, journalists and researchers from across the state of Arkansas and around the world.
