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.

100% of proceeds from sales of the film purchased on this page will be distributed in cash and gift cards directly to Phoenix, Oregon wildfire victims.

Special Edition Phoenix, Oregon Movie T-Shirt with artwork from the movie! Limited Quantities available.

100% of proceeds will be donated to the wildfire relief and recovery efforts for the city of Phoenix, Oregon and surrounding communities.

For larger tax-deductible donations, please contribute to the Phoenix, Oregon Movie Wildfire Relief Fund (in partnership with United Way of Jackson County):
