“Best Narrative by Audience” Bentonville Film Festival

Best Narrative by Audience • Bentonville Film Festival

“Our three winners — winners of the best narrative selected by jury, best family film and audience award categories — will receive guaranteed distribution, and that’s because of our partners,” says Davis, founder and chair of the nonprofit Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media. “That means their films will be on screen in AMC theaters, on TV on either Lifetime or Starz or one of our other TV partners, on Vudu for digital, and they’ll be on DVDs in Walmart. We’re the only one in the world who offers that, and we’ve had filmmakers tell us that distribution is much, much harder than getting their movie made.”
