OROVILLE – The Tumbleweed Film Festival rolled into Oroville last week and over 250 people enjoyed films from around the world, including one from a filmmaker from Omak.
The overall winner of this year’s festival was “North Atlantic,” a dramatic short film from Portugal by Bernardo Nascimento.
“I think it went well beyond our expectations,” said Geoff Klein, who with fellow Seattle filmmaker Mo Fine, founded the Tumbleweed Film Festival in Oroville last year. Since that time the festival has grown to include smaller “Best of Fests” held in the Tri-Cities and Omak, with another Best of Fest planned for Sept. 22 to 24 in Osoyoos, B.C. at the Desert Cultural Center at NK’MIP Resort.
