ABOUT: The Oregon Film Trail (OFT) connects significant filming locations across the state through recognizable trail markers. These markers are strategically placed, stitching together communities, locations, and notable films. The trail serves as a framework for communities to connect, share stories, promote travel, and celebrate Oregon’s rich filmmaking history. Currently, the trail features 41 film locations (with more planned) and over 500 film location sites. The goal of the Oregon Film Trail is to celebrate Oregon’s film history, support an interest in our filming communities, showcase locations that have been utilized by the film and television industry, and economically strengthen opportunities to market our communities to the growing global film tourism sector within the travel industry.
PARTNERSHIPS: The OFT has been made possible due to partnerships with Oregon Film, the OregonMade Creative Foundation, and with support from Travel Oregon, the Oregon Coast Visitors Association, the Astoria-Warrenton Area Chamber of Commerce, the Willamette Valley Visitors Association, SetJetters, and many other community partners.
