The ninth annual BendFilm Festival kicks off tomorrow (Thursday the 11th) and runs through Sunday the 14th, bringing independent cinema to Bend in an expansive festival. They feature a staggering number of films, events, and parties over the four days, so even if you’re just a little bit of a cinemophile you’re going to want to check it all out (if you haven’t already).
Venues include the Tower Theatre, the Liberty Theater, McMenamins, Regal Old Mill Cinemas, Tin Pan Theater, Cascades Theatrical Company, the Oxford Hotel, the Nature of Words, and the Astro Lounge. By my count there some 121 different movies and events you can buy tickets for, and really there’s no way you can cover it all! But you can definitely have a good time trying.
If you don’t have the hardcopy festival guide, the ticketing grid view gives a great overview of all the things going on.
