Bentonville Part 1

Earlier this month, the Inclusion Films crew spent two weeks in Bentonville, Arkansas doing a film workshop for local students and filming the Bentonville Film Festival.

Bentonville is the home of a very large retailer you may have heard of (hint: Walmart) and also a very large film festival that speaks to our mission: diversity in film and media.

Our crew of 12 was made up of instructors from our film workshops in California and we were very excited have 6 former students from our programs who were hired in assist in camera, sound, editing and writing for the project.

How’d we end up in Bentonville, Arkansas? Last year, a very passionate student from Northwest Arkansas Community College attended our camp in California and had a blast. She was determined to bring the program back to her hometown and after a series of conversations with our friends in the Special Education and Vocational Rehab departments in Arkansas, here we are!

We packed a lot into our time there, and this week we’ll be sharing the highlights!

Welcome, San Bernardino!

Today, Inclusion Films and Employment & Community Options are opening the MadeIt Film & Media Workshop in San Bernardino, CA. This is the 5th California location for Inclusion Films. The program is led by a team of great filmmakers and we can't wait to get started on our first production. Stay tuned for more updates about what is going on in San Bernardino and at the rest of our workshops and camps.
