This year has afforded me an excellent opportunity to “attend” a number of film festivals without ever leaving my hometown and how fun to get a chance to participate in a forward-thinking one such as the Bentonville Film Festival, now in its 7th year. Chaired by Oscar-winner Geena Davis and held in Bentonville, Arkansas and other areas of the Northwest part of the start, the week-long event aims to champion the underrepresented voices in media and they’ve routinely been heralded for making good on their commitment. One of the Top 10 film festivals reaching over 85,000 attendees each year, content includes Movies, TV, Digital Content, Books, Music, Games and Technology.

Stay tuned for reviews from the creative line-up of movies in the narrative and documentary categories — the programmers have curated an eclectic mix and I’m having trouble narrowing the field down to fit everything in with my limited schedule!
Here is the link to my reviews of five films from the festival – enjoy!
