SIXTH ANNUAL EASTERN OREGON FILM FESTIVAL
Eastern Oregon Film Festival is kicking off its sixth edition on Thursday, May 7, and will run through Saturday, May 9.
The opening night feature is Guy Reid’s stunning feature documentary, PLANETARY. It will be preceded by Danny Madden’s ALL YOUR FAVORITE SHOWS!, and a live Q&A with the filmmakers will follow. Additional selections to look for include Scott Cummings’ hypnotic BUFFALO JUGGALOS, Sara Dosa’s THE LAST SEASON, a meditative look at Oregon mushroom hunters, and Alison Bagnall’s closing-night comedy FUNNY BUNNY.
Special screening events include a Secret Screening with Zach Weintraub and an Online Showcase hosted at FilmmakerMagazine.com.
Events will be hosted at The Art Center, The Granada, The Liberty Theatre, Schwarz Theatre at Eastern Oregon University, and a special Friday outdoor music event in the newly-renovated parking lot at Benchwarmer’s Pub on Depot street downtown.
