We are excited to announce our partnership with the Bentonville Film Festival!
‘BFF’ was co-founded by Academy Award Winning actor Geena Davis; also founder of the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media. BFF’s Mission is to champion inclusion in all forms of media by providing a platform to connect diverse storytellers with entertainment industry leaders and major corporate changemakers in order to accelerate the production and distribution of inclusive content that accurately reflect the world we live in – making it an ideal partner for the Easterseals Disability Film Challenge!
Our 2018 Easterseals Disability Film Challenge finalists will be announced and screened at the 2018 Bentonville Film Festival prior to the red carpet awards screening event! Easterseals Disability Film Challenge Founder and Director Nic Novicki will also be featured as a panelist on Casting Call, a discussion event held May 3.
Writers, directors, producers, and casting agents have the ability to broaden the scope of their projects to truly reflect the world we live in. This discussion explores the steps we can take to make sure we all feel like insiders.
