BendFilm: The Movies and the Parties 

The guide to your parties and movies of BendFilm.

Today I entered the Liberty Theater for the first time ever (the largely empty space has been closed for a few years now thanks to some legal troubles from prior owners), to pick up some info on the BendFilm Festival, which kicks off tonight with an opening reception and screening at the Tower Theatre.

To open the festival, BendFilm is screening A Film With Me In It, a feature-length narrative that focuses on a pair of down-on-their-luck slackers who watch as everyone else living in their Dublin apartment building dies. The dark, dark, dark comedy follows the two as they try to figure out what the hell is going on while not landing themselves in jail.

Check out the trailer for A Film With Me In It below:

Also tonight in BendFilm news…the annual Bash at the Box, which was once a party that turned clothing boutique Hot Box Betty into a full-blown dance club, has moved to the Blacksmith, where organizers promise a bash with or without the box.

  • Let's Find These Scoundrelly Bar Thieves

    We at the Blender believe in good ol' American justice -- and every other kind of justice. That's why we're asking you, the Internet reading folks in Bend, to help us find the low-life couple that distracted local filmmaker Chris Kas, then proceeded to jack his leather jacket which contained his wallet, keys and a borrowed HD video camera.

If you’ve missed past coverage of The Ascetic Junkies, well… you must have been hidden under a rock. From their 2010 album This Cage Has No Bottom, to the new music they are creating (and are sure to share with us tonight), most people just can’t get enough of their unique folk/rock/pop/dance goodness.
