Enjoy the very best independent films

Over 180 films submitted from across the U.S. and from over 25 countries.

If you enjoy movies, this Film Festival is for you. Films selected for showing will be chosen by a jury of everyday people just like you who love a good story – not highbrow film critics. Watch films. Listen to filmmakers talk about them.

The films are in seven categories: Adventure-Drama-Mystery, Animation, Documentary, Narrative, Pacific Northwest, Sci-Fi, and Spirituality. 

No films in the horror genre or films with gratuitous violence will be considered or shown. Parents with minor children: please use discretion; none of the films will have MPAA ratings (i.e. PG, PG-13, R).

There will be a fly-in of private planes. Hotel rooms are selling fast so get your lodging reservation in early.

Please join us for a long weekend of storytelling.


Friday, August 17, 9AM – Midnight

Saturday, August 18, 9 AM – Midnight

Sunday, August 19, 9AM – 3 PM

The Film Festival will take place at multiple venues in the small town of Cottage Grove. Many are within walking distance of each other. Some less than 5 minutes by car or 10 minutes by bicycle. Bring your bike and explore the town.

A $3,000 GRAND PRIZE and TROPHY will be given to the winner of the “Festival Best Film”. 

The winning film in each category will receive a “Category Best Film” trophy, which may also qualify them as “Festival Best Film Nominee”.

All films selected to be shown at the Festival will receive an “Official Selection” certificate to recognize their screening at the Festival.

Filmmakers attending the Festival, whose film will be screened, are welcome to attend the Filmmakers Reception. The invitation-only, media event will be hosted Thursday evening, August 16 and winners will be announced.
