Feature Film Set for Production in La Grande This February – Get involved! 

Eastern Oregon Film Festival is excited to welcome the first feature film incubated from its 2021 Eastern Oregon Filmmakers Residency seedling. The production is set for principal production in February 2023 in and around La Grande and has many opportunities for locals to get involved in the production.

Twenty-something Ben brings his longtime girlfriend Cassie to his rural Oregon hometown for the Christmas holiday to meet his parents and siblings for the first time. The night they arrive, an argument turns into a breakup, and the holiday goes from Xmas to Ex-mas as Cassie is now stuck with her newly minted ex and his family until the end of the holiday. Drama, comedy, and serious heartache ensue.

Creative Team

The film is written & directed by H. Nelson Tracey and produced by Static Films, a boutique production company based in Los Angeles known for producing thoughtful, independent stories from emerging filmmakers. The cast will include recognizable film and television actors. The crew will include a blend of visiting filmmakers and local residents collaborating to produce the film.

The screenplay was developed through the Eastern Oregon Filmmaker Residency. With a colorful ensemble and a balance of drama and comedy, Breakup Season evokes movies such as Little Miss Sunshine, Lady Bird, or The Family Stone. Unique to our film is an intricate exploration of early 20s relationships with an authentic approach not often seen in cinema.

The film’s release will begin with a nationwide film festival tour, followed by a VOD and/or theatrical release during the 2024 holiday season.
