CHAMPIONING INCLUSION
IN ALL FORMS OF MEDIA

ABOUT US

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

EVENTS

Movie Mondays

BFFoundation and Visit Bentonville, with a monthly sponsor, support a monthly screening on a Monday to bring back BFF alumni films to share with the community and our audiences. Each screening will showcase their film and have a scheduled live Q & A with the filmmaker.

Virtual Screenings available on date of showing for 24 hours. Ticket prices are $8.

Please follow us on social media for future updates on virtual and local community screenings for Movie Mondays.

THE MISSION

Diverse Storytellers

By supporting the achievements of diverse storytellers, and connecting them with entertainment industry leaders and major… corporate changemakers, we believe we can accelerate the production and distribution of inclusive content to accurately reflect the world we live in.

Thanks so much for your kind hospitality! What a film festival! There’s a few fests out there that could take a lesson from BFF!

OUR SPONSORS

We extend our sincere gratitude to our 2020 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.

2020 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.
