Parker's Anchor, which I directed in early 2016 has been announced to premiere at the 2017 Bentonville Film Festival in AK.
This year marks the third birthday of the Bentonville Film Festival, co-founded by Academy Award winner Geena Davis with a mission to champion women and diverse voices.
The 2017 festival, which runs from May 2-7 in Bentonville, Arkansas, unveiled its lineup on Monday, including the opening night film 3 Generations, starring Elle Fanning, Naomi Watts, and Susan Sarandon.
And there’s plenty more in its slate of films (there was, according to a press release from festival organizers, a 247 percent increase in submissions) that span across categories like Narrative and Documentary Feature Competition, Short Film Competition, Episodic Content Competition, and Spotlight Narrative and Documentary Feature Competition, and hail from countries including France, Nicaragua, Brazil, India, Austria, and Iran, among others.
In a statement, Geena Davis says, “I’m so excited to be heading into our third annual BFF. The Festival has become an important catalyst for change and we look forward to celebrating the accomplishments of the past year and setting the stage for years to come.”
