The first Oregon Short Film Festival was a huge success!

The very first Oregon Short Film Festival 2016 Official Selections screened on August 30th, 2016. Furthermore, we had a great night and a large crowd at the Avalon Theatre. First of all, I want to thank Bar Circa 33 for hosting our mixer after hours. Above all, we had a fun time getting to know the filmmakers in attendance.
