Geena Davis Launches Film Festival to Encourage Female Filmmakers

Promoting woman and minority filmmakers, Geena Davis is starting the Bentonville Film Festival, a festival  that will be the only competition in the world to guarantee theatrical distribution for the winners.

The BFF is being co-hosted by WalMart, AMC, Coca-Cola, and ARC Entertainment, and the advisory board contains big names like Natalie Portman, Julianne Moore, Angela Bassett, Samuel L. Jackson, and Shailene Woodley. The festival will screen about 75 films in competition, and the films that win the Audience, Jury Selection and Best Family Film Awards will get a distribution agreement with a guaranteed theatrical release in at least 25 AMC theaters.
