It salutes actors who exhibit creativity, craft, and commitment to the art of acting. The festival is the only American film festival focusing its awards exclusively on actors and directors.

NY Cool has called Bennett "a budding star." She has been cited as "a young, gorgeous woman who exudes sexuality . . . yet comic" by Pretty Scary, and The Huffington Post has written "Juliette Bennett delivers an assured and nuanced performance."

In addition to THE COUPLE and THE THORNHILLS OF PARK AVENUE, Bennett has appeared in the film AS GOOD AS DEAD, on television's LAS VEGAS, as well as on the New York stage.
