Owen Story Special Fundraising VOD Screening


Festival Director Christopher Jennings has worked diligently to revive and to provide OWEN STORY, a feature length independent film, that he, and many others, helped make nearly 20 years ago in La Grande and Union as a special VOD (Video on Demand) screening to raise money for our Festival!

“The makers and creatives behind the project express their gratitude for the opportunity to share this project again after nearly 20 years. This project planted the seeds for that which inspired projects like The La Grande Summer Film Project and was a catalyst to EOFF’s inception. Having EOFF provide a platform to archive this, almost lost forever, independent effort is a testament to its mission of supporting local projects and nurturing filmmaking in our rural region and I can’t wait to see more local projects get preserved and shared this way. 
Enjoy. “

— Christopher Jennings.

You can preorder and plan to watch from home beginning April 30 on our Friends of the Festival Eventive Channel. The film will lock up again May 31. A special live stream Q&A will be added to the screening for later in May with some of the cast and crew that brought this project to life. Look for details to come.
