about out in focus

OUT in Focus is a collaborative project with BendFilm aimed at increasing access to films which highlight diversity and inclusion.

Focused on establishing a greater depth of culture within Central Oregon through monthly screenings at BendFilm’s Tin Pan Theatre, OUT in Focus provides space for meaningful discussions and quarterly community gatherings. This event is proud to be inclusive, and to encourage discussion about topics in film that creatively engage core issues related to identity of LGBTQ+ and other marginalized characters - history, health, sexuality, aging, family, and finding self in a world of adversity.
