Celebrating Independent Film Every October
BendFilm is an independent Oregon film festival in the truest sense–rugged, brilliant, daring, adventurous, fun and engaging. BendFilm is an imaginative and thought-provoking film festival that is intimate, allowing you immediate access to the next best filmmaker, celebrating the brave voice of independent cinema through films, lectures and education. If you are an indie film advocate or are just looking for a one-of-a-kind experience, our festival in Bend, Oregon is well worth the visit. We host a wide variety of film genres that cover just about every topic imaginable. The BendFilm festival is hosted every October in a number of local theaters including a historic movie theater downtown, a cozy and intimate movie house, a state-of-the-art cinema, inside a craft brewery, and a chic performance venue. Filmmakers and guests come from all over the country to screen the best new independent cinema and interact with the audience. BendFilm is made possible by a dedicated crew of volunteers and generous sponsors.
