Short Film Winners 2016 – 10 Films 10 Brands

The Bentonville Film Festival, in conjunction with Walmart and ESPNW, created an exciting opportunity for new filmmakers to be discovered during the 2016 festival. Called “10 Brands /  10 Stories”, the contest solicited entries from filmmakers based on concepts provided by leading consumer brands. The resulting two-to-five-minute videos incorporated the brand sponsor’s catch phrase, slogan product or essence and needed to tie in to the BFF mission of championing women and diverse voices in media as well as portraying the filmmaker’s interpretation of athleticism and perseverance.
