Oregon Documentary Film Festival 2018  Event Recap

First of all, we are proud to announce the 2018 Oregon Documentary Film Festival Official Selections. Most noteworthy, the screening date at 5th Avenue Cinema was May 25-26, 2018. Furthermore, there were approximately 250 people that attended the event, which has grown since the 2017 Oregon Documentary Film Festival event. Also, filmmakers and attendees traveled from South Africa, Los Angeles, New Jersey, and Oregon. We were excited to screen the films and certainly had fun Q&A sessions. As a result, it was a heavily engaged crowd with strong representation from Oregon attendees as well. Finally, the date for the 2019 Oregon Documentary Film Festival was announced for March 23, 2019.
