A Local Film Lover Tells You WHY BendFilm | Film | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

"F

ilm has the ability to impact my mood, reflect my interests, challenge me, expand my horizons and experience ideas and places I might not otherwise get to. It's as diverse as I am!

"I love that with film I can learn through documentaries, be absorbed into science fiction, feel the ups and downs of a romance, cheer for the underdog in a drama, laugh out loud with a comedy, get an adrenaline rush in an action-adventure, travel to times and places both real and imagined, and find inspiration in ALL genres. That's awesome!



One of my favorite BendFilm inspirations was the movie, "Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines. It was at BendFilm when I was still in public office. Celebrating various ways people, and particularly women, show up in the world is incredibly important to me. We are multi-faceted individuals. To quote Diane von Furstenberg, I believe 'We all have a Wonder Woman inside us.'"

*This is one feature in a series of stories from filmmakers and film lovers about how storytelling enhances our lives. #ItsAllAboutTheStory #IndieFilm #BendFilm
