Join us for our inaugural year of the Cascadia Adventure Film Festival, where we celebrate the adventures that push us to our limits, and help us forge a deeper connection to the natural world. Born here in beautiful Bend, OR.
CAFF will showcase influential films that highlight the adventurous spirit that lives inside each of us—the films that get us stoked. We’re inspired by human-powered exploration, and the values that keep the wilderness wild. It is through adventure that we discover who we are and what we can achieve. Adventure brings us closer to the natural world in our own backyard, and wherever we may go. So are you in?
Bend, Oregon is where we hang our hat—internationally recognized destination for adventure travel, outdoor sports, and responsible tourism. With a host of activities for year-round recreation, Bend is the perfect spot for this first-of-its-kind festival. Here you can mountain bike endless miles of singletrack, pitch a tent under the stars, or cast a line into our gorgeous rivers.
Environmental stewardship is at the heart of our mission—we want our kids (and their kids) to look out on the same breathtaking mountains and forests we do. Whatever sport sparks your passion, we urge locals and visitors to do one thing: Leave Bend better than you found it.
With more than two dozen breweries, distilleries —as well as award-winning restaurants and a vibrant art scene—your nights will be as busy as your days during our festival.
To bring you films and experiences from the Cascades and beyond, to enhance your appreciation for outdoor adventures, help you discover new places to explore, and inspire a sense of community for those who love to share and preserve the outdoors.
