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

Your support for independent local news is important.

The Source Weekly has been Central Oregon’s locally owned news outlet for over 23 years. We have always been the definition of "support local." Our success in navigating this new world is tied to the success we experience in pulling together for the common good.

Quality local journalism takes a group of dedicated reporters passionate about democracy and open government. This story is the result of our hard work, and in normal times, the result of the support of the advertisers in Central Oregon. In the age of COVID-19, however, that support has taken a hit—but that’s where you come in.

"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.'"
