With the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival celebrating its 25th year, Executive Director Courtney Pledger discusses its growth.
“HSDFF began as the first of its kind in North America, ahead of the curve in support of documentary film. Filmmakers adopted and maintain great affection for HSDFF because [we] supported them before it was fashionable to do so. In recent years, the festival has developed and expanded with the explosion in popularity of the genre, finding ways to remain highly relevant on the international festival canvas, while retaining the qualities that made it unique and filmmaker-friendly from its early days.”
