A PERSONAL CALL TO ACTION BY THE “PHOENIX, OREGON” MOVIE TEAM & PRODUCER, LUIS RODRIGUEZ: On September 8, 2020, the Rogue Valley was forever changed when the Almeda fire burned through the communities of Ashland, Talent, Phoenix and Medford. This is an especially monumental blow to the filmmaking team behind the 2020 comedy “Phoenix, Oregon”. Not only is the film named after the town, but several crew and family members of the producers lost homes. Funds will help at risk and vulnerable members of our community rebuild in the weeks and months to come.
