Feed a Filmmaker Fundraiser

We are on a mission to feed our incoming Eastern Oregon Filmmakers Residency Cohort. Sponsor a Single Plate and help keep our residents well nourished so they can be creative, while introducing them to our local restaurants and food vendors. Learn more about the residency.

The Eastern Oregon Filmmaker Residency is a special program in which we host up to six visiting writers / directors at The Lodge at Hot Lake Springs from April 30-May 26. The time is spent crafting, refining, and developing a screenplay that has the potential to be produced in our valley. The program launched in 2021 with an incredible batch of characters that led to the exciting and much talked about filming of “Breakup Season” in La Grande last month.

Sponsor an Single Plate

Individuals can donate a single plate ($15) to feed a visiting Filmmaker a meal while staying in La Grande. This donation will also come with your vote on recommendations.

Sponsor a Cohort Feast

Purchase 6 single plates ($90) for our cohort and get listed OR list your favorite local restaurant in our community recommendations.
