Celebrating Independent Film Every October
Holding a series of events annually and a four-day film festival each October, BendFilm’s mission is to celebrate the brave voice of independent cinema through films, lectures, and education. The annual BendFilm Fall Festival is held in downtown theaters, lecture sites, music rooms, and party venues all over Bend. Showing films not usually available due to limited distribution, festival goers discover new filmmaking, acting talent, and have access to hear, meet, and talk to the filmmaker.
You can either buy a pass, an advanced ticket online, or show up at a venue early enough to get in with standby. Only Full Festival and Full Film Passholders with reserved tickets to all desired shows get seated before non-pass holders if they show up at least 20 minutes in advance. Festival Childcare is available and a BendFilm Membership comes with local discounts, limited entry to monthly (non-October Festival) screenings, merchandise drawings, access to the BendFilm Lending Library, and member-only festival ticket pre-sales.
