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 for this Film Festival Circuit event.

From 1999-2015 I worked on location in the television and film industry as a location sound mixer, production manager and field producer. I have also worked in post production as an editor, post sound mixer and composer. Today, I am the Director of Film Festival Circuit LLC, a US based company that manages international film festival events in Texas and Oregon. Our team is passionate about showcasing new independent films, videos, series episodes, screenplays and teleplays of all genres.

Are you new to the Film Festival submission process?

Film Festival Circuit events have reviewed over 5,000+ submissions since 2008. Our judges see issues repeated daily that weaken the presentation of films, videos and screenplays during the evaluation process. The Film Festival Submitter’s Handbook was written to help filmmakers and screenwriters build a successful strategy and avoid common costly mistakes when submitting to Film Festivals.
