Oregon Documentary Film Festival 2017 Event

2017 Oregon Documentary Film Festival Recap

First of all, thank you, to all of the attendees and filmmakers of the very first Oregon Documentary Film Festival. We screened Fifteen (15) short and feature length documentary films from all over the world over two days. I can't believe there were  over 250 attendees! Most noteworthy, this documentary film festival event was more successful than we ever dreamed, in our first year.

I was excited to kick things off on Veterans Day, Friday November 10th, 2017. The world premiere of, Stu Steinberg, a PTSD Documentary Film about US Military Veterans. Stu Steinberg himself issued a call-to-action for our audience. Above all, to offer better and more efficient medical support for combat veterans. Also, Director Clay Kempf's film was voted "Best Feature Film" by the judges. Furthermore, several veterans from the northwest were on hand for the screening.
