WELCOME!

Eugene's Downtown Initiative for the Visual Arts (DIVA) celebrated its tenth OpenLens Short Film Competition anniversary in January, 2014. This annual festival has provided the opportunity for Oregon resident filmmakers to showcase their films of 15 minutes or less in an exciting competitive event that celebrates the independent spirit of Oregon filmmakers.

The Openlens Festival is taking a one year hiatus while DIVA restructures its organization. We appreciate all of the past submissions and look forward to calling for new submissions in late 2015 for the 2016 festival event. Meanwhile, here is an archive of of the past ten years incuding programs, guest filmmakers, and award winning films.
