BendFilm will host the 5th annual BASH fundraiser on Thursday May 28 from 6–9pm at the Volcanic Theatre Pub. This year BendFilm celebrates its 12th anniversary by increasing the size, scope and entertainment value of their mission-based annual fundraiser. The main attraction will be a multi-media variety show by the cast and crew from the Night Light Show with ShananKelley.
They have performed in front of 25 sold out audiences since February 2014 including TedXBend and the World Muse Conference. For the first time they will take the show to the Volcanic Theatre Pub. Gourmet appetizers will be provided by Spork. GoodLife beer will be provided by Bigfoot Beverages. Elixir Wine Group will supply the wine and Bendistillery will provide spirits. There will also be ample opportunities to win great prizes and BendFilm merchandise.
All who purchase a ticket for the event will be eligible to win a 2015 BendFilm Festival Full Film Pass. Those who purchase a ticket before May 25 will get a free BendFilm
membership. There will be a raffle of great prizes, BendFilm merchandise and a Full Festival Pass which allows free entry into every film and party.
“We are coming off a fantastic year. The 2014 fest was one of the best fest experiences I had. It’s inspiring to see how enthusiastically the community embraces and supports our organization,” said BendFilm Director Todd Looby. “If this fundraiser is successful, we’ll have the capacity to improve the festival, meet the community’s demand for more year round screenings and foster more local filmmaking through our education programs. We’ll also just have a really great time celebrating film and all the best Bend has to offer with our sponsors and the Night Lights with Shanan Kelley crew.”
BendFilm celebrates the brave voice of independent cinema through films, lectures and education. The organization was designed to enrich the cultural life of Central Oregon and provide an economic stimulus to the region through our annual fall Festival and our yearround education programs and film screenings. In its 12th year, BendFilm is proud to bring diverse voices, perspectives and visions to the Bend community. BendFilm is made possible by a dedicated crew of volunteers and generous sponsors.
