One of the things we love about our festival is the interaction with these spectacular filmmakers. EOFF will be updating its media library with our Q&A’s from 2011 and are implementing some great new ways to document and share this conversations. Check out our growing collection here.

GREEN was an official 2011 Eastern Oregon Film Festival selection and we were so lucky to have the chance to discuss Sophia’s film with her, as well as producer/actor Lawrence Levine using SKYPE. We were also lucky enough to have cinematographer Nandan Rao in attendance!


2011 marked an incredible year of growth for our little festival — enjoy this collection of tidbits and photos to a little music – hope it serves as a peak into the great energy of our little festival.

The 2011 Jury Award for best narrative feature went to Evan Glodell’s ‘Bellflower‘. Following the screening on Saturday, October 22, Glodell tuned into La Grande, Oregon via skype from his hotel room in Ireland. He discusses the use of very little resources, participation of key players, and the grueling, yet rewarding, process behind the development and production of ‘Bellflower’.
