A ceLebrAtION OF INdePeNdeNt cINeMA take a moment to reflect and answer this question: 2020 will be remembered as the year I _______________. 2020 will be remembered as the year where uncertainty is the new norm for everyone. It has been a year of challenges and heartache, a year of learning, listening and questioning what needs to change and how we can do better—as individuals, as organizations, as a community. 2020 will also be remembered as the year that our community stepped up in big ways. at a time when we have to be physically distanced, we understand that we have to remain connected. Our community came together to enjoy drivein movies this summer, gathered at a distance in tin Pan alley to share in a novel experience and logged in remotely to watch films through the Virtual tin Pan, because we know the value of art is to help heal and guide us through these uncertain times. You made it possible to embrace this year because of your open mind, love of the arts and dedication to a future when Bend thrives on every level. With a renewed sense of the importance of connection, we have found creative ways to watch films together and continue our rich legacy of celebrating independent film in Bend during the 2020 BendFilm Festival. after an enthusiastic community response during the summer’s drive-in series, we are thrilled to continue this timeless film-going experience for the Festival. With respect to the safety of our audiences and filmmakers, we will present the main Festival program virtually through our online platform, Eventive, which will open up the program for people to watch from the comfort of their home in Central Oregon and beyond. and more than $12,000 in cash prizes will be awarded to the hardworking filmmakers. We are embracing the uncertainty of this time and thank you for leaning in and being patient with our new normal. We will learn as we go, seek input from our audiences and listen to our filmmakers as they share their experience. as an organization dedicated to celebrating independent film, we can take a page from our filmmakers’ books and do things our own way.

hOW-TO eXPerIeNce tHe FeStIvAL FrOM yOur cOucH Or FrOM yOur cAr. How to Stream Films: You can stream films on tVs and other devices using Eventive. Most BendFilm or tin Pan theater ticket-buyers have an Eventive account from past Festivals or recent tin Pan screenings. Some virtual films have limits on tickets just like limited seats in a theater. “Pre-Order” tickets to those must-see films to secure your spot. Once the films become available (see THE SCHEDULE page) you will have to “unlock” them and "start watching" prior to the end of the film’s scheduled run. Once starting, you will then have two days to finish watching on your tV or the device of your choice. You can stream Festival films on your tV using apple tV, Chromecast, Roku or by connecting your laptop computer to your TV via an HDMI cord. If using Roku or apple tV, add the Eventive “Channel” (or “app”). You will then be prompted to connect your Eventive account, which is easily done by following the instructions on your tV. Once connected, you must browse the Virtual Catalog on your computer or smartphone and “unlock” the films you want to watch. Once “unlocked,” those films will appear in the Eventive Channel on the Roku or appletV the next time you return to your couch. Once again you will have to click to start watching the film prior to the end of the film’s scheduled run and you will then have two more days to finish watching once you start. *note: You can also connect your apple tV to your iPhone, iPad or apple Computer using airplay. If you have Chromecast technology or a new smart tV, newer android phones and computers can “cast” the film content to your tV. Be sure to read the user friendly “need help?” page on the Eventive Virtual Festival site, “Test Your Device” and “Launch live Chat Support” if you need additional assistance.

BIPOC WOMXN Production Grant Saturday, October 24 @ 10 a.m.

The grant supports storytellers who are working to tell creative and complex stories told from a point of view that is unique and authentic.

A live masterclass with Michael Taylor, editor of Lulu Wang's “The Farewell.”

This grant breaks down the economic barrier to democratize the art form which in turn will:

1.) Support the career of an underrepresented artist. 2.) Increase the production of films that accurately portray underrepresented communities. 3.) Lead audiences to a better understanding of themselves (if underrepresented) or to the life experience of someone unlike themselves. Three to five final candidates will virtually pitch their projects live to a panel of industry professionals during the Festival. The panel will decide the winner of the $7,500 production grant. This grant is made available by the Braemar Charitable Trust, the Roundhouse Foundations, the Starview Foundation and Infocus Eye Care.
