Calling All Filmmakers | Bent

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.

Tin Pan Theater will be hosting their first amateur film festival and encourage all creative types to submit films—five minutes tops—by March 1st for consideration. Films will be juried by the Tin Pan Theater board of directors, and selected entries will be screened following Art Hop in the first week of April.

Extra credit is awarded for:
