Eastern Oregon Film Festival Welcomes Cohort!

Eastern Oregon Film Festival is very excited to welcome the selected attendees for the first annual Eastern Oregon Filmmaker Residency Program! This year’s cohort will be hosted at The Lodge at Hot Lake Springs for the duration of their stay as they focus on writing screenplays that are informed by their time in our region.

The inaugural group of EOFF residents is composed of 4 festival alumni, as well as 2 attendees who are new to the Eastern Oregon scene. This year’s cohort brings a variety of professional experience, award winning talent, and unique perspectives that will energize creation and collaboration in the enrichment of these artist’s projects.

Through planned adventures and engagement opportunities, EOFF’s goal is to build a connection between the artists and our community, laying the groundwork for a potential production in the future. You can find these new comers wondering around downtown La Grande. Feel free to say hi and welcome them to our little neck of the woods.
