The 15th Annual BendFilm Festival
On October 11-14, 2018, Bend, Oregon will be transformed from a recreational haven into a small town obsessed by the film industry’s soul. We gather to behold the work of the most talented independent filmmakers. Downtown theaters, lecture sites, music rooms, and party venues spark with the energy excited by the overwhelming presence of cinema. The event runs deeper than the marathon film-watching that fills guests’ schedules from dawn until, well… dawn. Everyone you see on the sidewalks, in the restaurants, and bars makes films, cares about them, or has an opinion about film. It is the serendipitous encounters and ensuing discussions with the filmmakers and fellow passholders that makes the weekend so inspiring and affecting.
