BendFilm Festival

October 6, 2022 - October 23, 2022

Attend the 19th Annual BendFilm Fest Happening October 2022

BendFilm is an independent Oregon film festival in the truest sense – rugged, brilliant, daring, adventurous, fun, and engaging. Academy-qualifying and one of the “25 Coolest Festivals in the World,” BendFilm is located in the wondrous mountain town of Bend, OR and has been showcasing some of the best independent films in the Pacific Northwest and beyond for nearly two decades. BendFilm is an imaginative and thought-provoking organization who is also the operator of a microcinema, the Tin Pan Theater.

Our Festival screenings are intimate, allowing you immediate access to the next best filmmakers. And if you are an indie film advocate or are just looking for a one-of-a-kind experience, our festival and theater in Bend, Oregon is well worth it.

Bend, Oregon is a culture-loving community that shares your passion for creative arts. It is no wonder that over one thousand films get submitted to our festival every year and we screen over 100 films throughout the year at the Tin Pan. We host a wide variety of film genres that cover just about every topic imaginable. Our festival is hosted in a number of local theaters including a historic movie theater downtown, a state-of-the-art cinema, inside a craft brewery, a chic performance venue, and BendFilm’s very own year-round cinema, the Tin Pan Theater!
