So great to return here with my directorial debut feature, after screening my short film here in 2018. The BFF team really made the most of a virtual experience and made us filmmakers feel connected, despite the unusual circumstances.”

OUR SPONSORS

We extend our sincere gratitude to our 2021 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.

2021 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.
