One of the most significant BFF minutes came during the 2019 celebration, when they met a gathering of strange participants who had purchased passes and were seeing movies consecutive every day. When they spoke with them, it became clear that it wasn't just the films they were excited about, but also that the festival itself represented a safe space. They have seen that kind of concentrated viewing at larger festivals. Seeing in real time how much of a difference it can make to a community to see themselves on screen and to feel celebrated rather than targeted hit hard because there are a lot of political and cultural factors working to suppress the very voices that our programming aims to uplift in this area. Additionally, that group had more questions than any other audience we have seen during the Q&A period!

Bentonville genuinely goes all on a mission to cause the celebration to feel like a unique occasion for the whole town, and in light of the fact that the city is likewise the center of a few huge organizations who back the celebration, there's an extraordinary demonstration of help for producers and participants. It's a charming town where people enjoy the arts but not everyone makes them, so having filmmakers in person is a welcome novelty. The venues are of the highest quality, the food is fantastic, and the excitement is genuine. It gives great pride that so many filmmakers have described it as one of their favorite festivals!
