It’s the 10th year for the Bendfilm Festival, and organizers have a big season lined up.
Festival Director Orit Schwartz says the Bendfilm Festival was just named one of the top 25 festivals worth entering, which is pretty impressive since there are about 5,000 festivals worldwide.
"We've steadily been growing the past 10 years, and it's just becoming stronger and stronger where filmmakers all over the world are wanting to submit and get programmed into our festival, which is really fantastic when you hear filmmakers come to you and say 'I’ve heard about it; I’ve heard s much about Bendfilm."
Schwartz says for the 10th anniversary; they are really ramping up the visibility in some major cities, hoping to draw some pretty big names.
There is a "Bendfilm Bash" to kick off the season at "Elevations" restaurant on the COCC campus on May 31st. Tickets are available through Bendfilm.
