    EOFF has festival operations DOWN in the age of COVID. In addition to making the films available for the run of the festival, which most fests are doing now, they also had live panels, as well music events and filmmaker get-togethers.
    Communication was superb. Christopher did an amazing job!
    EOFF really has their s&%t together. I am so proud to have been a part of it.

    Such a wonderful event to be a part of. Chris did a great job of creating a unique experience despite the virtual circumstances. I look forward to coming back when it's a bit less virtual!

  • Despite the pivoting all fests have had to do this year, EOFF made the transition seamlessly and made being a filmmaker still feel like part of a community. Cheers to Christopher and his team for the success!

  • An incredible festival! Even though the experience shifted online this year, Christopher and the team did a fine job showcasing my film and connecting audiences with the my work. And they sent me a really thoughtful swag bag all the way in Toronto, Canada. I will definitely submit here again with my next films. Hope to see you all in La Grande soon.

    I love this Festival. It's no wonder it's been voted 25 of the coolest Festivals. COVID made it virtual this year but they made a huge effort to give every filmmaker a feeling of being there. They sent a super AWESOME, thoughtful Festival goodie bag with lots of cool stuff. They also had several virtual filmmaker networking zooms and AMAZING zoom Q&A's. They even had a live concert with great local musicians for the ending of the Festival which gave a wonderful feeling and harkens back to deliver that community and party atmosphere Festivals do so well. I can't wait to attend this Festival in person so I will be applying to this Festival with every film I make. Thank you Festival team EOFF2020! You all rock!!
