Bend, Oregon’s 16th annual independent film festival, BendFilm launches in less than two weeks! As a proud Screening Partner Sponsor, Karnopp Petersen is excited to support the four-day festival that showcases the unique voices and some of the best independent films in the Pacific Northwest.
The festival of films presents a variety of genres and topics throughout regional theaters and local venues including Bend’s historic Tower Theater, Regal Cinemas, McMenamins, Redmond’s Odem Theater, Tin PAN Theater, and the Madras Performing Arts Center.
This year, BendFilm welcomes IndieWoman of the Year – Christine Vachon, producer of Oscar-winning films, Carol and Boys Don’t Cry. The festival’s First Features Honoree – Ron Shelton is the Oscar-Nominated Writer/Director of films, Bull Durham, White Men Can’t Jump, and Tin Cup.
