The paparazzi will be out in force Sunday night at the Tower Theatre for the annual Academy Awards party. This year's event is a fundraiser for the Tower Theatre Foundation and BendFilm. Orit Schwartz with BendFilm says the evening is a real hoot. "There is a dress to impress contest. And the Tower Theatre is doing that again this year. And I just thinks its a really fun way to watch the Oscars. To have a big group of people and kind of cheer for the movies you're hoping will win. It's going to be very nice. The Tower Theatre is such a great venue and then on the big screen, it just add extra fun elements to the evening." Schwartz says there will be "swag bags" to purchase and pictures with a faux-Oscar. All the money raised will go to help the Tower Theatre Foundation and BendFilm. This year the film festival is October 6th through the 9th and Schwartz says they are already receiving lots of entries.
