ABOUT US

Inclusive Storytellers

BFFoundation is a non-profit organization focused on promoting underrepresented voices of diverse storytellers. We want to amplify female, non-binary, LGBTQIA+,BIPOC, and people with disabilities’ voices in entertainment and media. We do this through research, education, and supporting the production and distribution of inclusive content.

It has been a great opportunity for us to have GOOD EGG’s world premiere at BFF, as the festival’s mission perfectly aligns with our goal to advocate diversity both in front of and behind the camera and support indies, which provides an excellent opportunity for so many young ambitious filmmakers to jumpstart their career. The short weekend that we spent at Bentonville felt like a mini retreat in such a picturesque city surrounded by lavish nature and your staff’s warm hospitality.

OUR SPONSORS

We extend our sincere gratitude to our 2022 sponsors for supporting inclusion in all forms of media. We are honored to have partners who believe that if they can see it, they can be it.

2022 SPONSORS

BFFOUNDATION acknowledges Indigenous peoples were forced to leave their ancestral lands, including the Osage, Caddo and Quapaw Nations with ties to Northwest Arkansas. We further recognize that a portion of the Trail of Tears runs through this area, and that the Cherokee, Choctaw, Muscogee (Creek), Chickasaw and Seminole Nations passed through what is now Arkansas during this forced removal. We acknowledge all Indigenous storytellers and residents in our community and region.

BFFOUNDATION denounces white supremacy and unequivocally supports Black Lives Matter. It is at the very core of our mission to promote and amplify underrepresented voices in media, supporting pathways that help end racial inequality. We stand in solidarity with these voices, along with all unheard voices, that are silenced by racism and systemic biases.
