More than 175 film festivals across North America have been cancelled or postponed as a result of COVID-19. Movies unite us in a way that no other art form can and film festivals play an essential role in connecting our community to support the works of independent storytellers. Please join us in a celebration of our communities, our audiences, independent filmmakers, and what makes the film festival experience so unique.
“To put it simply – and yes, gratefully – Phoenix, Oregon is the sort of movie a lot of us need right now.”
