BendFilm Lending Library: members may check out 2 films at a time for a 1 week period which are available in the BendFilm office during regular hours (Mon, Tue, Thurs, Fri 8am-2pm).
Note: due to the increasingly digital nature of film festivals, most filmmakers no longer send us DVDs, which means that BendFilm will have many films to view from early years and less as the years progress.  The full list is accessible as a spreadsheet int the bullet point link above. Films from the current season will be available early in the following calendar year because we have to secure permission from each filmmaker in order to have the film in the library.

Your support of BendFilm is crucial to our longevity and success. It allows us to showcase films and share stories you would not otherwise have the opportunity to experience.

Please note that the lending library is only available to current BendFilm members.
