1. Who are you?
My name is Anne Richardson. With Dennis Nyback, I served as co-curator of the Oregon Sesquicentennial Film Festival at Marylhurst, which ran May 1-10, 2009. I have an MFA from Columbia University School of the Arts, Film Division.
2. Why are films NOT made in Oregon in your blog?
This blog includes films made by Oregon directors, writers, actors, cinematographers and composers, as well as films based on books by Oregon authors, and films inspired by the lives of real life Oregonians.
3. Why so few recent films?
I started with the earliest Oregon films and am working my way, film by film, to present day.
4. Why are some of your posts about people, and not movies?
I try to include a post about the director for all Oregon films. I also post about Oregon actors, Oregon musicians, Oregon writers.
5. Have you actually seen all these films?
There’s a few I haven’t seen. Some are so hard to find that it is impossible to see them.
6. Which is your favorite film?
Changes every day.
7. Are you from Oregon?
