Robert De Niro Honors His Father at #BvilleFilmFest

BENTONVILLE, AR — The Bentonville Film Festival is bringing in some big stars to NWA, including Academy Award winner Robert De Niro.

De Niro is showing a documentary he made about his father’s career. Robert De Niro Senior was an accomplished artist in his time.

De Niro says he never intended to make a movie but once he started collecting his fathers work, writing and memorabilia, he realized it would be an interesting film and that BFF would be a great place to show it.

“What better place?” he said.  

“It’s a wonderful museum that I’m about to see and if some of my father’s work could be here that’s what I would like. The whole idea is to have it have a home or homes or places either people buy it and cherish it…care for the works.”

De Niro’s film will show June 9th on HBO, or you can watch it now on HBO GO.
