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.

BendFilm Announces Documentary Film Series

BendFilm is bringing hit documentaries to local theaters this winter and spring.

Posted By on Wed, Jan 11, 2012 at 11:32 PM

While the BendFilm festival remains a painful nine months in the future, BendFilm is giving Bend a much-needed shot of indie cinema in venues throughout the area this winter and spring.

The series kicks off on January 26 with a screening of the documentary, Becoming Chaz, a film that documents Chaz Bono's journey through his transgender reassignment. The film is co-presented by COCC and the Human Dignity Coalition and tickets are $10. The screening is at 6:30pm in the Hitchcock Auditorium.

Here's a look:

Then on Sunday, January 29, BendFilm brings My So Called Enemy, a documentary about Palestinian and Israeli girls who become friends, to the Sisters Movie House. That kicks off at 1pm. Tickets are $12 at the door or at bendfilm.org. The director will be available for a Skype Q&A following the screening.

Then on February 9, you can get a look at the Best in Show winner from the 2011 BendFilm festival, This Way of Life, which tells the story of a white man raised by a Maori family in New Zealand who faces incredible obstacles as he raises his own family. The filmmakers will be Skyped in for a Q&A all the way from New Zealand following the screening at the Tower Theater.

Finally, on April 12, you can get your eyes on my favorite documentary of the entire festival, The Clean Bin Project. This film follows a young couple through a year in which they try to produce zero waste. It's funny and personable, but also makes you think twice about whether you really need that plastic straw that comes in your cocktail. Directors (who double as the stars) Jen and Grant, will be on hand to discuss the film. 7pm, Tower Theatre.
