Bentonville Film Festival

Bentonville, Arkansas / May 2020 / bentonvillefilmfestival.com 

Co-founded by Geena Davis and Trevor Drinkwater, this festival focuses on diversity. The submission process includes “a diversity and inclusion qualifier questionnaire” that promotes gender parity, diversity, and inclusion. Educational and networking events include the Diversity and Inclusion Summit, a Geena & Friends event, and a filmmakers’ retreat with workshop and industry panels. Distributors Paramount, Lionsgate, Universal, MarVista, Samuel Goldwyn Films, and Lifetime have made the trip to Bentonville. Located in Walmart’s hometown, the festival is supported by the retail giant and Coca-Cola. Recent screenings include Jenna Laurenzo’s Lez Bomb (winner of best narrative in 2018) and Marianna Palka’s Egg. The 2018 festival saw more than 1,000 submissions with programming of 130-plus features, shorts and episodics.

      I can assure you that the Beaufort International Film Festival held each February in Beaufort, SC is well worth the entry fee. See the recap here -https://vimeo.com/321820933
