    I had a great time! Didn't hand out a lot of business cards, but I saw some great films, had a lot of talks with other filmmakers, and they handled the premiere of my feature with courtesy and respect. Also, great music and great beer!

  • I had a great time at this charming, small festival and Chris Jennings was an excellent host. It is in a beautiful area and the filmmaker's party with mimosas and outdoor hot springs soak was delightful.

    Eastern Oregon Film Fest was a wonderful opportunity to showcase our film. Christopher and his team program the fest’s films and events with care, placing importance on community. It’s well worth the trip to La Grande no matter where you’re coming from!

    EOFF is not only a spectacular festival staffed by hard working volunteers, it's the kind of festival that makes you remember why you make art in the first place. Every film on the docket was genuinely great, and the town couldn't have been more welcoming. Hopefully I'll have a chance to return
