It started Thursday and will run through Sunday.
The festival's new Executive Director Todd Loobie says this event brings in people from all over the country and even world.
"Our counts are around 6-thousand or so, but we get quite a few visitors coming from out of town just for the festival. So I've learned its a great community cultural outlet, but also an economic stimulant."
The films shorts and documentaries can be seen on seven different venues throughout Bend and this year for the first time, films will be shown at the new Warm Springs Elementary school.
