2017 Audience Favorite

We are pleased to announce that Keenan DesPlanques has won the $250 prize from Peter Werner, Attorney at Law, for his film “Finding Time.”

Keenan’s connection to the BBFF is mainly through former BEA Coach, Chad Cheeney, who is a Bend-Native and has coached Keenan through the Durango DEVO cycling program.

“While this film starts out seemingly as a simple tale of adventure, the film really pulled the audience along through every scene,” says BBFF Director Bill Warburton. “Watching it live in the theatre, seeing and hearing people’s reactions — everyone was totally captivated and engrossed in their own reflections of hardships and challenges that have provided guidance through our lives.”

Enjoy the film:

The Bend Bicycle Film Festival (BBFF) launched in May 2009 with two purposes in mind: to showcase local short films featuring our unique cycling culture here in Central Oregon and to create a social gathering where we can all reunite every spring to get excited about riding bikes!

Our mission is to celebrate artistic expression and stimulate excitement within and around our local cycling community.

Cycling, as represented by the films and our Festival, represents a diverse array of interests from physical health to environmental stewardship to strengthening community because so many Central Oregon residents ride bikes in their daily lives.

Proceeds from admission and raffle tickets directly support the The Bend Endurance Academy, a local non-profit offering youth, junior and masters development programs for cycling, rock climbing and Nordic skiing.
