Bentonville Film Festival (BFF) are fast friends. As proof, this duo fuses forces for explosive fun on Friday, May 5 in Bentonville, Arkansas. The public is hereby invited.
Now 3 years old, BFF is the brainchild of American retail juggernaut Walmart and Oscar-winning actor Geena Davis (“Thelma & Louise,” “Beetlejuice,” “Stuart Little”). For its 2017 installment, BFF features a culturally diverse and gender-inclusive program of competition films, retrospective screenings, expert panel discussions, and special attractions, such as a 25th anniversary ball game to commemorate the original theatrical release of “A League of Their Own”, a cryptic Warner Brothers “Wonder Woman” movie extravaganza featuring members of the creative team, and the ‘Hidden Figures’ Lunar Lander Challenge for middle school students. All of this happens in Walmart’s backyard; Bentonville, Arkansas is the hometown and headquarters of Walmart.
For true Blue Blur fans, though, the best of BFF boasts Sonic the Hedgehog. Here are corresponding details:
