The Oregon Independent Film Festival is known for our championing of local and independent cinema. Honored for our comprehensive documentary programming, and developing a buzz around our experimental and horror programming, OIFF invites you to check out our brilliant films each fall in when the sun is out, and the hiking, skiing, and outdoor fun are also thriving in the summer-fall vacation season.
