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.

BendFilmThe eighth-annual BendFilm festival gets underway tonight with an opening presentation and film screening at the Tower Theatre, followed by a slate of hip-looking parties running late into the night. From what our crack team of movie lovers can tell, this is shaping up to be one of the best years in the festival’s history. Here’s our unofficially official BendFilm recommendations.

At 5:30 p.m. tonight, the festival officially opens with a screening of A Beginners Guide to Endings, a creepily dark comedy that stars Harvey Keitel as a father who submits his three adult sons to a dangerous pharmaceutical test that ends up putting an expiration date on their lives. Here’s a look:

Opening up the event will be a presentation by famed indie animator Bill Plympton, who will introduce his short film Guard Dog Global Jam.

Tickets are $11 in advance and $12 at the door.

Stay tuned to the BentBlog this weekend for updates, movie previews, recommendations, interviews, general nonsense and more from BendFilm.
