In addition to official selection screenings, EOFF will host a screening block featuring The Best of Northwest Filmmakers’ Festival presented by The Northwest Film Center in Portland, OR. A SECRET SCREENING is also slated for Saturday that showcases the work of a local filmmaker who took part in EOFF’s filmmaker project sponsor program. This “silent film” tells the story of a woman who receives troubling news about her apathetic boyfriend, which forces her into a critical decision. Director Benjamin Morgan’s unique short film stars local actors Jocelyn Berado and Gregory Rawlins.
