Due to COVID-19, we will not be gathering at Skylight Cinema this week for Movie Monday as planned. However, in support of our BFF “See It, Be It” Filmmaker Fellows, we’re encouraging everyone to participate in a “Virtual Movie Monday” all week, by watching “International Falls”, (Amber McGinnis), “Olympia”, (McKenzie Chinn) and “Go Back to China”, (Emily Ting). All three films were part of BFF 2019 and the filmmakers are among eight women selected for the inaugural “See It, Be It” Filmmaker Fellowship. Let’s do our part to support independent film and these amazing filmmakers!
Out of an abundance of caution and public health concerns regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19), and to prioritize the safety of our artists, partners, creators, brands, and team, the Bentonville Film Festival has made the decision to move the festival’s 2020 dates from April 29-May 2 to August 5-8.
Bentonville Film Festival Foundation and the Coca-Cola Foundation have announced the “See It, Be It Filmmaker Fellowship,” an annual fellowship designed to offer expansive developmental support for filmmakers from historically underrepresented communities.
