The Tibetan Cultural Institute of Arkansas has been a fixture in Northwest Arkansas for nearly a decade. The non-profit seeks to bring authentic Tibetan culture to our community. The second annual Tibetan Film Festival, this weekend March 2-3, helps expose Arkansans to the rich heritage and people of the storied Central Asian region. The event will take place at Circle Square on 21 W. Mountain St. in Fayetteville and is free to the public.

The event will feature soups from more than 30 local restaurants, music and a live and silent auction. Tickets are $25 for general admission, $10 for children age 5 to 17 and free for children under 5-years-old.
