[La Grande, Oregon] The Eastern Oregon Film Festival will celebrate its 3rd annual event October 20-22 in beautiful downtown La Grande, Oregon. The 3-day event features 2 spectacular independent films — 10 features and 10 short films, 7 of the Northwest’s most notable up-and-coming indie bands, and 3 after-parties at some of La Grande’s best venues.
Featured films for this yearʼs program include the NW Premiere of Jon Foyʼs Sundance winning documentary ʻResurrect Dead: The Mystery of the Tonybee Tilesʼ, the West Coast Premiere of Tristan Pattersonʼs moving and intimate SXSW winner, ʻDragonslayerʼ, and Evan Glodell’s innovative and thrilling low-budget phenom, ʻBellﬂowerʼ. The West Coast Premieres of Sophia Takal’s ‘Green’ and Dustin Guy Defa’s ‘Bad Fever’ , as well as the World Premieres of Travis Swartz’s ‘Nobody Cares’ and Ian Clark’s ‘Country Story’ will provide a rich indie flavor for this year’s menu.

ORA will also facilitate a panel discussion after the screening.
Filmmakers Jon Foy (Resurrect Dead), Travis Swartz, and Ian Clark will be presenting their films and facilitating Q&As after their features, while many other directors will be tuning into the Grande Ronde Valley via innovating and engaging SKYPE Q&As.
