18th ANNUAL BENDFILM FESTIVAL: OCT. 9-10 (IN-PERSON) and 7-17 (VIRTUAL)
Beginning in October 2021, BendFilm will be requiring proof of vaccination or proof of negative result within 72 hours of event start time, for entry into all BendFilm festival screenings at any of our venues. The decision comes in the midst of a dramatic surge in Covid-19 cases in Deschutes County as the Delta variant is spreading. Please see below for our COVID protocol and frequently asked questions.
WHAT KIND OF TESTS WILL BE ACCEPTED?
A negative COVID-19 test result (molecular, PCR or antigen) that was administered by an official testing center. Test results must be dated no more than 72 hours prior to entry. Home testing kit results will not be accepted for entry. Entrance will require either digital or printed proof of test results from official testing organization.
HOW DO I SHOW PROOF OF VACCINATION WHEN I ARRIVE?
Acceptable documentation may be a physical copy of a COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card, a digital copy of such card, or such other proof as is permitted locally.
I’M VISITING FROM ANOTHER COUNTRY, WHERE OTHER COVID VACCINES ARE APPROVED FOR USE (ASTRAZENECA, FOR EXAMPLE), WILL I BE ABLE TO GET IN?
Yes, as long as you’re considered fully vaccinated.
WHAT IF I FORGET MY PROOF OF VACCINATION?
You won’t be allowed entrance.
WHAT ABOUT ATTENDEES UNDER THE AGE OF 12?
As the vaccine has not been approved for use on kids under age 12, a negative Covid test taken within 72 hours of the event will be required.
WILL I STILL HAVE TO WEAR A MASK?
Yes, per the August 24th, State of Oregon, mandate. Mask wearing will be required.
More special films will be added daily. Check back often!
