WONDER: A Mini Film Festival

Two months shy of their annual festival, Bend Film is hosting another film event. (Hey, can we acknowledge what a great job Bend Film has been doing hosting film events throughout the year now!) This "mini-film festival" screen ten short (under three minutes) films created by local filmmakers in under 72-hours, all with the theme: "wonder." All films have been juried and the best film will be announced and will be screened at the 2015 BendFilm Festival in October. Also, come ready to vote for your favorite film for the audience award with a prize of five tickets to the 2015 BendFilm Festival. Oh, and leave the kids at home: Some films are not suitable for children.

7:30 pm, Wednesday, August 5. Old Iron Works, 50 SE Scott. $5 donation.
