This Changes Everything — Tom Donahue’s documentary about redressing gender imbalance in Hollywood — will kick off Geena Davis' Bentonville Film Festival.

The feature, which was exec produced by Davis, will be accompanied by the fest's annual program Geena and Friends, featuring Davis along with an all-star group of female actors who reimagine memorable dialogue from all-male movie scenes through an all-female lens.

BFF’s competition selections, including narrative features, docs, and episodic projects, are 81 percent female directed.
