Exclusive: The Seven Faces of Jane Opens Bentonville Film Festival 2022

June 27, 2022

Founded in 2015 by actress Geena Davis and ARC Entertainment executive Trevor Drinkwater, the Bentonville Film Festival (BFF) is an annual festival held in Bentonville, Arkansas that shines a particular spotlight on traditionally underrepresented voices in film. Championing women, LGBTQ+, and racialized artists and artists with disabilities, BFF has made a marked commitment to enact change in an industry that has historically catered towards, and provided disproportionate opportunities for, artists of a singular demographic (that is, straight, white, able-bodied, and male). In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Davis reflected on BFF granting “an opportunity to examine [diverse representation] on camera and behind the camera.”
