Festival Recap: Oregon Documentary Film Festival 2017
I would like to say 'thank you' to all of the attendees, filmmakers and supporters of the very first Oregon Documentary Film Festival and write a brief festival recap. Fifteen short and feature length documentary films from all over the world were screened at this two-day event. With over two hundred and fifty total ticket purchases and attendees combined, the event was more successful than we ever dreamed, in our first year.
Festival Recap: The Awards
We kicked things off on Veterans Day, Friday November 10th, 2017 and screened 'Stu Steinberg,' a film about US Military Veterans with a call-to-action to offer better and more efficient medical support for those that have served in combat. Director Clay Kempf's film was voted "Best Feature Film" by the judges and Stu Steinberg himself was on hand for the screening with several veterans from the film.
