The festival will once again occur in the historic North Bend Theatre and iconic locales around town, with a lineup of independent film premieres, live events and immersive content.
North Bend Film Festival has put early-bird passes on sale and opened film submissions for the 2021 festival. Looking towards a summer edition, the fest will return with new films and experiences for local, regional and national visitors. As with previous years, NBFF’s programming will focus on vanguard filmmaking styles, which includes works that push the boundaries of the art of cinema through storytelling and visual techniques.
The fourth edition’s scope will be similar to past editions, including feature film screenings, short film programs, filmmaker talks, live events, and immersive content. Still, it will have an added virtual viewing element, allowing customers to watch a selection of programs from the comfort of their own home.
Each year, NBFF brings together filmmakers, locals, and visitors to celebrate visionary filmmaking techniques, bringing some of the most exciting film premieres to town. 2021 promises to do the same, with a diverse team of film programmers and producers located in New York, LA, Stockholm, Montreal, Seattle and North Bend to build programs that excite and enrich the local community.
“We can’t be more excited to return to North Bend and the North Bend Theatre in 2021. This year has been a rocky road, and the prospect of supporting filmmakers and bringing back the best and most anticipated movies and immersive experiences is extremely exciting. ” Adds NBFF co-founder and film producer Hugues Barbier.
At the center of festival planning is audience safety. NBFF will provide a more robust refund policy than in the past to ensure that audience members feel comfortable about their early-bird badge purchase. More information on their 2021 policy can be found here: www.northbendfilmfest.com/refund
To kick off the 2021 festival season, the fest is offering an early-bird holiday badge sale available for the month of December. The sale includes $40 of 10-ticket packages.
