For the 10th anniversary of the annual Klamath Independent Film Festival (KIFF), exclusively showcasing made-in-Oregon films, a grand celebration will commence honoring arguably the greatest comedy film in history and shot on location in Oregon – National Lampoon’s Animal House.
Taking place Sept. 16-18 at the Ross Ragland Theater in Klamath Falls and streaming online via Eventive, the film festival will feature over 30 films shot in Oregon or made by Oregon resident filmmakers, including several world premieres and multiple films made in the Klamath Basin.
We are excited to be a part of a celebration coming to Cottage Grove this August in honor of the dishonor that was “Animal House.” The Eugene and Cottage Grove shot film was released in the summer of 1978 and it is time to get together and have a massive Food Fight, Toga Party and put ourselves on Double Secret Probation – what else is summer for?
Nike has released a video parody of the (in)famous toga scene from “Animal House” (originally shot on the University of Oregon campus in 1978) that showcases a collection of athletes and U of O VIP’s dancing to Otis Day and the Knights’ “Shout”. It’s fun to see the lines between a classic film and such sporting legends blur. Read Oustide’s article here. Continue reading... “Nike and U of O Create Parody Of “Animal House””
