    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.

  • The Eastern Oregon Film Festival was a memorable, engaging festival experience! I watched impactful films, spent time with interesting, down to earth filmmakers, explored a unique part of Oregon, and enjoyed participating in the Q&A after my film screened. Chris, the festival director is a gem and all the volunteers made me feel welcomed and taken care of. Thanks again for showing my short doc My Dad Gets a Smartphone!

    Buenos Días! though I was unable attend the festival to accompany our film, La recua - the mule pack train, I was very impressed with the attention to detail. Communication from the staff topped anything else I have experienced. EOC is a small fest, but very well organized. Gracias por todo!
