Festival Backstory

Eastern Oregon Film Festival is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating a cinematic experience in Eastern Oregon that promotes discovery, entertainment, and education via artistic exhibition and viewership. Through the mediums of independent film and music we aim to expand the cultural experience within our region.

Eastern Oregon Film Festival had a tremendous 2010 year screening 20 films, showcasing 4 bands, and having a heck of a lot of fun.  The festival reached out to filmmakers across the globe and was blessed by the participation of such filmmakers as Matthew Porterfield (Putty Hill), Jessica Oreck (Beetle Queen Conquers Tokyo), Kentucker Audley (Open Five) and many more.

Portland, Oregon’s “Yeah Great Fine”, and Boise’s “Finn Riggins” & “Hillfolk Noir” blessed last year’s stages and were accompanied by local musicians Shaun Daniel and Sons of Guns for 3 nights of after hour gatherings.
