BendFilm 2016: What a year!
View this email in your browser


Thank you for your continued support of independent cinema. Our 2016 monthly screenings and 13th Annual Festival were wildly successful and you are the driving force behind our success. 

I know I speak for the Board of Directors, the staff, and all the volunteers when I say that being part of this organization is incredibly inspiring. We hope that our festival and screenings serve as a reminder that life is truly beautiful and the world is an amazing place when it's not viewed through the lens of a 24-hour news cycle.

BendFilm nourishes our community’s soul, inspires creativity in our youth and stimulates our economy. There is so much more we can do to make Bend a better place to be and we need your continued support to build a strong arts community

Please take a few minutes to revisit 2016 and see what is coming in 2017. 

We at BendFilm wish you and your family a Happy Holiday Season. Thank you once again!

Giancarlo Gatto
President, BendFilm Board of Directors

"It was such an honor to be a part of a festival that clearly loves films & filmmakers and to be welcomed into such a warm and fun community. I felt especially proud of the effort...put into creating a festival like this--an opportunity to share ideas and be inspired and start relationships.

It's a special place and a special group of people! (Plus great beer! Win win!)"

- Kristin Slaysman, 2016 Documentary Juror and Supporting Actress, Little Sister
