All of the following films have some Oregon connection. Either they were shot here, or were based on a book by an Oregon author, or were inspired by the life of a real life Oregonian, or they feature the work of an Oregon director, writer, actor or musician, composer, cinematographer, you name it.

The below list will be easier to use after I link each film with its post. But while I am catching up with that, you can find each film listed here by using the Search feature to the right.

Another way is to use the Categories column (also on the right)  to search for specific subsets of films ie  “Oregon directors” or  “Oregon composers” or “Lost films” or “1970’s”. Lots of choices, lots of categories. Lots of films.

I’m posting about Oregon film history chronologically, so that is why the blog is top heavy with older films. The list of titles below is alphabetical, but the blog was created chronologically. I take detours for current films when they premiere, or make the news. But basically, I started with the first Oregon filmmakers, and am going forward, trying to catch up to present day.

Right now I am getting ready to write about films of the 1990’s.

Here’s the list of titles, alphabetically arranged.
