Each year, BendFilm rallies support to continue our mission of using film’s unique power to unite the community and inspire social action. This fundraising event includes the premiere of an originally produced emotionally-impactful film that showcases the life-transforming work of a fellow Central Oregon nonprofit.
In 2018, BendFilm Festival executive produced “This is My Family”–a short documentary directed by Taylor Morden of Pop Motion Pictures about The Bend Spay & Neuter Project‘s life-transforming program exhibiting the unique power film has to unite the community and inspire action. Check it out and let us know what you think!
The June 2nd event was an unqualified success wherein BendFilm hosted 180 amazing and generous people who contributed to help us further our mission celebrating the wonderful art form of independent film!
