It’s almost time for the 2012 Bendfilm Festival, and organizers say this year's will definitely outshine last year's.

Orit Schwartz says the first night of the festival will feature a very special documentary.

 

"We have a lot of great narratives and documentaries and short films. We are running 90 films this year and we have 7 screens, 6 venues, and we are opening the festival with the Ethel Kennedy documentary that her daughter, Rory directed."

 

Pre-sale tickets for members go on sale Thursday and then the general public can buy tickets beginning September 10th. Beginning tomorrow the bendfilm website will have synopsis of each film and where it will be shown and when. 

 

The Bendfilm Festival is October 10th through the 14th; you can get venue locations, and other information at www.bendfilm.org.
