The wait is finally over! Sundance Film Festival begins today in Park City, Utah. Founded in 1978, the 10-day festival is the largest independent film festival in the U.S. It is host to American and international filmmakers and provides a showcasing of their latest work in many genres of film. We're excited to see what our favorite filmmakers have to show off this year!

Today is Martin Luther King Jr Day. In order to commemorate him, our focus this Monday is on Selma, a film that highlights the monumental march from Selma to Montgomery and the struggles that made the Voting Rights Act of 1965 a reality. BWFF was lucky enough to have Selma’s director, Ava DuVernay, as a guest during the 2014 festival.
