The North Bend Film Festival

July 15, 2021 - July 18, 2021

The North Bend Film Festival is emerging from the fog with a hybrid 2021 festival taking place July 15-18, 2021. The in-person portion of the fest returns audience members to the historic art deco North Bend Theatre for a limited amount of feature film and short screenings to complement a robust virtual lineup of screenings, talkbacks, and immersive experiences. The majority of film selections will be exclusive to physical or virtual with only a few overlaps making for a unique festival experience however you choose to attend.

New to the festival is the Dulac Vanguard Filmmaker Award meant to honor an extraordinary achievement in groundbreaking filmmaking with a director’s first or sophomore film. This year’s recipient is Jane Schoenbrun for their debut film “We’re All Going to the World’s Fair,” a beautifully haunting work that captures with surreal relevance the dual sadness and hope of life lived through a screen.
Continuing the festival’s mission to present groundbreaking immersive events, this year will feature a tongue-in-cheek pregnancy mystery party with I Swing, You Swing, a self-led storytelling experience that will take place across North Bend with Marcia Needs Space and the in-person return of fest favorite Strange Storytelling Hour, which will be recorded in front of a live audience and offered online for virtual viewing after.

North Bend Film Fest virtual programming is geo-restricted to the Pacific Northwest (Washington, Oregon, and Idaho) with two types of festival passes currently on sale: a 10 feature or shorts program package for $95 and a 12 feature or shorts program package for Industry Members also priced at $95. All event programming will be free to pass holders. Individual ticket options also include a $3 discount for locals attending in-person screenings.
