In addition to official selection screenings, EOFF will host a screening block featuring The Best of Northwest Filmmakers’ Festival presented by The Northwest Film Center in Portland, OR. A SECRET SCREENING is also slated for Saturday that showcases the work of a local filmmaker who took part in EOFF’s filmmaker project sponsor program. This “silent film” tells the story of a woman who receives troubling news about her apathetic boyfriend, which forces her into a critical decision. Director Benjamin Morgan’s unique short film stars local actors Jocelyn Berado and Gregory Rawlins.


Afterparty music events will be held at Hq following each day of screenings. Musical acts will include Seattle’s ‘Truck-stop rock” Sons of Guns, Portland, OR-based experimental duo Methods Body, Boise-based folk-rocker Nick Delffs, Sun Blood Stories – Psych-rock trio, also from Boise, and Portland-based Spaghetti-Western Rock-and-roll 7-piece Federale.


Screenings will be held at Festival Hq (112 Depot Street), Wine Down, and Beckie’s Studio of Dance. A special Friday night screening of I AM HUMAN will screen at EOU’s McKenzie Theatre.

Full schedule of events and screening times will be added to the festival website.
