LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Arkansas Cinema Society’s inaugural event is set to kick off in Little Rock later this month, and will feature Star Wars actor Adam Driver.

The society announced Wednesday that Driver will screen his film, “Paterson,” at the three-day film festival.

Other films to be screened include “Patti Cake$,” ”Pete’s Dragon” and “The Force Awakens.” Several question-and-answer sessions with filmmakers and actors are also scheduled.

Little Rock native Jeff Nichols is the chair of the society. His credits include writing and directing the movie “Loving” for which Ruth Negga was nominated for an Academy Award. He also wrote and directed the movie “Mud,” starring Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon.

The festival is scheduled to run Aug. 24-26.
