BendFilm hosts an annual film festival as well as year-round film exhibitions and education programs promoting arts and
cultural tourism throughout central Oregon.
On October 12-15, BendFilm will host its 14th consecutive film festival–showcasing up to 100 of the best
independent narrative and documentary films. Throughout the festival, visiting filmmakers lead educational
panel discussions and interact with the audience at screenings and parties. The Future Filmmakers program is
BendFilm’s premier educational component where young filmmakers screen films and receive professional mentoring
during the festival.
The BendFilm Festival venues include The Oxford, McMenamins - Old St. Francis, Regal Cinemas in the
Old Mill District, Tin Pan Theater, The Volcanic Theater, The Old Stone Performing Arts Center and the historic
Tower Theatre. www.bendfilm.org
