Luckily, today has been a refreshing day to stand outside and wait in line to get into the plethora of films screening at BendFilm. Unfortunately for some, the wait for the 3pm screening , and world debut, of Rage Production's Boom Varietal: The Rise of Malbec didn't result in a viewing of the locally produced film.
I happened to be walking out of a screening of The Color Wheel, and saw the thick line of people waiting to be let into the screening of Boom Varietal. Back at the office, we spoke to several people who waited in line and weren't able to gain entrance because for the first time a locally made film sold out at BendFilm. It's definitely great to see people coming out in support of local film.
In case you missed it, Boom Varietal screens at least once more (depending on whether or not it wins any awards and earns a Sunday screening. Check out our feature story on the film to get a little background and then buy your tickets early for the Saturday screening at The Oxford Hotel.
