    Incredible festival all around. My short played there and it was an absolute blast. Saw a lot of great films, love music, parties, networking, etc.

    The town is also fantastic! Set amongst the mountains of Eastern Oregon there is a ton to do and it is beautiful in October. I will be attending next year whether or not I have a film to show.

    This is my favorite fest I've attended in Oregon - authenticity, passion, environmental magic, and good music and people all come together to create a unique experience well worth the trek. So happy I got to share my film here!

    A huge thanks to Chris Jennings and the whole EOFF team for an unparalleled experience at this year's festival. My short film, "Dissonance," was able to screen twice, each time followed by a lively Q&A, inside the historic Liberty Theater in downtown La Grande. The overall lineup of films was incredibly well-curated and I was equally impressed by the quantity and quality of filmmakers who made the trek to Eastern Oregon. To top it all off, the nightly live music did not disappoint, solidifying an undeniable ethos to this small town festival that clearly punches above its weight.

    What an incredible discovery! We are honored to have screened "The Last Election and Other Love Stories" at EOFF this year (2022) and couldn't have been happier with our experience. The festival is a must for independent filmmakers. A wonderful place to connect with awesome filmmakers and watch amazing films in well attended theaters - with GREAT PROJECTIONS! La Grande is a very special place as well. The organizers are truly wonderful. I want to be back again and I will recommend the festival to everyone I know.
