2021 FESTIVAL FILM PLAYLIST

The 2021 BendFilm Festival will present more than 45 feature films and 75 shorts from around the world. Bearing in mind that you can’t watch every film on the schedule, our programming team has curated film categories to help you find exactly what you’re looking for; whether it be a film that entertains, inspires, or challenges you.

 

“Always allow yourself to be surprised. I recommend picking a film, a shorts program or panel that wouldn’t normally be your top pick—it may just be the most memorable choice you make at this year’s fest!” —Selin Sevinc, Head of Festival Programming
