Natural Vines® is happy to be partnering up with Bend, Oregon- based independent film festival, BendFilm, for their First Friday Block Party on October 7th in downtown Bend. We’ll be downtown handing out free 8-oz bags of our delicious Strawberry and Black Licorice candy (a $1 per bag donation to the BendFilm cause is encouraged) and hanging with the awesome BendFilm volunteers and their star filmmakers.
Keep up with the action by following us on Twitter (@Natural_Vines). Visitors will also be able to view our favorite scavenger-hunt themed short-film “Six Clues,” playing on the outdoor big screen in the background amongst some short-films to be featured in the festival the following day. There will also be beverages, both alcoholic and non, to go along with the festivities, the proceeds of which will go directly towards the supporting costs of the stellar work the BendFilm crew is known for.
“We’re so excited to be a sponsor of BendFilm’s Block Party,” says Natural Vines Associate Brand Manager, Mercedes Davidson. “The partnership is a perfect fit for Natural Vines because of BendFilm’s commitment to supporting film education and stimulating creative thought and community sharing of inspiring ideas.”
BendFilm is a non-profit organization dedicated to the “cultural betterment and economic situation of our home: Central Oregon.” The films of the festival will be featured at the historic Tower Theater, McMenamins, Regal Cinemas in the Old Mill, and The Oxford Hotel from October 6-9, 2011.
