he revamped, reinvigorated Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival will return in its 22nd year to the historic Arlington Hotel. The festival, Oct. 11-20, will play host to award-winning films and filmmakers from around the world. Ryan White’s Good Ol’ Freda, the story of Beatles’ secretary Freda Kelly, who finally breaks her silence on her close working relationship with the greatest band in history (more in highlights section), will be this year’s Opening Night Film, kicking off a top line-up of films, panels and events. The debut Mckinnis Sports Documentary Series, will include powerful human stories set against fields, courts, rings and tracks of competitive athletes. Highlights from the series include  The Big Shootout: The Life and Times of 1969, which revisits the game of the century between the Arkansas Razorbacks and the Texas Longhorns, and ‘1’, set in the dangerous Golden era of Grand Prix Racing, from the producers of Oscar-winning documentaries Undefeated and The Cove, and  narrated by Michael Fassbinder.  For the first time in its 22-year history, HSDFF will present awards for Best Documentary Feature, Best Documentary Short, Best Sports Documentary and Audience Awards for both sports and broader-themed documentaries. There will also be an HSDFF Hope Award in the area of human rights. Festival director Courtney Pledger says, “Though we’re adding awards, the festival will still retain its filmmaker-friendly feel. Adding awards honors as well as Official Selection laurels to a film’s list of credentials helps give a film more profile and draws attention from distributors.”

Guests at the Arlington can mingle with filmmakers over cocktails and eats in the lobby area, while being able to retreat to their rooms when they need a break. This year’s line-up will expose audiences to nearly 100  touching, eye-opening stories, allowing them to see places they might never have the chance to visit or revisit places in a completely different light.

GOOD OL’ FREDA OPENING NIGHT OCT 11 Ryan White/U.S. Freda Kelly was just a shy Liverpudlian teenager when she was asked to work for a local band hoping to make it big. Though she had no concept of how far they would go, Freda had faith in The Beatles from the beginning, and The Beatles had faith in her. History notes that The Beatles were together for 10 years, but Freda worked for them for 11. Many people came in and out of the band’s circle as they grew to international stardom, but Freda remained a staple because of her unfaltering loyalty and dedication. As the Beatles’ devoted secretary and friend, Freda was there as history unfolded;

she was witness to the evolution — advances and setbacks, breakthroughs and challenges — of the greatest band in history. In Good Ol’ Freda, Freda tells her stories for the first time in 50 years. One of few documentaries with the support of the living Beatles and featuring original Beatles music, the film offers an insider perspective on the beloved band that changed the world of music.

SPA CITY

T

he friendly, historic city of Hot Springs National Park is accustomed to people falling in love with it. As America’s First Resort and one of the South’s most popular family vacation and convention destination spots, Hot Springs carries on important hospitality traditions. Hot Springs is also the hometown of our nation’s 42nd president Bill Clinton, who credits the resort city as being responsible for the early educational experiences that led him to a career in public service, first as Arkansas attorney general, then governor of Arkansas, and ultimately the Presidency of the United States.

HISTORIC DOWNTOWN Enjoy gorgeous hiking trails in the Ouachita Mountains, tour the historic Fordyce Bathhouse and Visitor Center, try a relaxing Hot Springs spa and fill up on the cool mineral water that flows from the springs at various locations throughout the city. Downtown also includes Victorian architecture, world-class art galleries, restaurants, nightclubs and classic hotels, such as The Arlington Hotel and Spa, the host and sponsor of the film festival, a selfcontained resort with all the ambiance and hospitality of a traditional, grand old Southern hotel. Established in 1875, it features full spa service and great restaurants. The Arlington will be offering special room rates of $89 per night during the festival. 239 Central Ave. (501) 623-7771. The Park Hotel, located at 211 Fountain Street, just down the street from the Arlington, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and exemplifies the architectural brilliance of the 1920’s and 30’s. While visiting, try their inhouse Italian restaurant Angel’s In The Park (dinners only) or browse through the lobby Civil War Book Shoppe. Also

try their sister restaurant Angel’s for either lunch or dinner located at 600 Central Ave.  (501) 609-3665. Film Festival ticket or badge holders can dine at either location and receive a 15% discount on meals (excluding alcohol). Right across the street from the Arlington is Rolando’s, where you can find Latin Fusion cuisine that is made fresh daily. Their handmade tamales, traditional Cuban black beans and rice with pulled pork, and most popular dish, the tantalizing Pescado de Mesias, are a must. 210 Central Ave. (501) 318-6054. Just above Rolando’s and fitting for the history of Hot Springs comes a new bar by the owners of Rolando’s. Rolando’s Speak Easy, as the name implies, will be a prohibition-era bar with a menu to match. Servers in flapper dresses on weekends will make patrons feel like they have stepped into a 1920’s time capsule. While on the subject of prohibition, The Gangster Museum of America, also located on Central Avenue will take you back to the days when gambling, boot-legging, prostitution, and hot mineral baths brought people from all over the country to the Spa City. The Hatterie, which is located in the museum, has stylish and affordable chapeaus as well as Fedoras, Godfathers, Panamas, Derbies, Top Hats, Ivys and Newsboys for men and women. To learn more about the rich history, consider purchasing the book, From Capone to Costello, written by the director of the museum Robert Raines and slated to release on November 25th at Barnes and Noble, Books-A-Million and Walmart. A book signing tour will kick off at the museum the day after Thanksgiving followed by events in L.A., NYC, New Orleans and Chicago, as well as other Arkansas dates. Just down the street from the museum, Lauray’s: The Diamond Center, which was established in
