LA GRANDE, Ore. – The Eastern Oregon Film Festival (EOFF), now in its sixth year, is presenting independent film and music programs Thursday through Saturday, May 7-9.

“This cultural event brings guest filmmakers and industry professionals to La Grande to present cutting-edge works in independent cinema while invoking powerful conversations on a array of socio-cultural issues,” said Chris Jennings, festival director and digital marketing manager at Eastern Oregon University. “We’re excited for EOFF to present two segments on EOU’s campus this year.”

FRIDAY, MAY 8 // Schwarz Theatre // 1:10 p.m.

Local community and student filmmakers showcase their recent and in-progress projects at 1:10 p.m. in EOU’s Schwarz Theatre in Loso Hall.  Tim Mustoe’s documentary, “THE PEOPLE BEHIND THE PRINT,” about The La Grande Observer, will be featured. In addition, filmmakers Will Bowman, Brent Clapp, Chuck Peters, Dylan Lutcher, Fernando Moreno and others will showcase their films. The showing will be followed by a panel with the filmmakers about film and media production at EOU and in the Grande Ronde Valley. The event is hosted by EOU’s theater club in partnership with the Eastern Oregon Film Festival.

Admission for Schwarz events:  $7 regular, $5 student, festival pass holders are admitted FREE.

FRIDAY, MAY 8 // Schwarz Theatre // 3:40 p.m.

Later in the afternoon, catch a screening of “MUDBLOODS,” a film about quidditch – the fictional competition featured in the “Harry Potter” series that has been transformed into a physically demanding, real-life sport. “MUDBLOODS” follows the resilient underdogs of the UCLA Quidditch team as they make their way to the Fifth Annual Quidditch World Cup in New York City.

Other festival events will be hosted at The Art Center, The Granada and The Liberty Theatre. A special Friday outdoor music event will be held in the newly-renovated parking lot at Benchwarmer’s Pub & Grill on Depot Street.

“EOFF’s musical line-up is, in a word, unprecedented. From heart-wrecking soloists to mathematical pop-rock wizardry, to spit-shined and callus-handed country blues, these tunes you’re invited to experience are nothing short of a candid reflection of what we stand for. Here are a handful of the region’s finest, friendliest, and funkiest—so lace ‘em up tight folks, this one is for the ages.”
— Gregory Rawlins, EOFF music programmer
