Good Works Film Festival



Good Works Film FestivalWelcome to Good Works Film Festival, a first-time event in Eugene (with a kick-off screening in Portland). We are presenting a series of acclaimed feature-length films with an array of social justice themes.

GWFF is not only about great films; what happens once the lights come on is equally important. The festival celebrates and encourages thoughtful discussion, community engagement and positive action, and will be providing a context, time and space for this to occur.

Numerous organizations and groups will participate, in the audience post-screening discussions with filmmakers, panels or roundtables, by providing resources and by networking and socializing at the festival Hub. All of these activities are intended to contribute to the civic dialogue and life of the community.

The Bijou Art Cinemas is the home for most of the festival screenings and the networking/social Hub, the Hult Center will host our centerpiece event, and the Eugene Public Library will be the venue for a day of screenings for students. For information about the films, ticketing and venues, please visit Good Works Film Festival
