Edward P. Davee

Oregon Arts Commission Oregon Media Arts Fellowship

Edward P. Davee makes films that are steeped in dense atmosphere, and reveal stories and emotional content through poetic use of sounds and visuals over dialog. His films have played in festivals around the world and studied in various college classrooms across the country. His work has won awards, been widely distributed, and praised by the media.

In 2011, Davee was the sole recipient of the Oregon Art's Commission's Oregon Media Arts Fellowship. The same year, he won a Project Grant from the Regional Arts and Culture Council, as well as their annual Innovation Award.

"Edward P. Davee has debuted with a strong first effort that's a breath of fresh air... To say he marches to the beat of his own drum doesn't begin to explain it; Davee appears to have thrown out the drumsticks...we implore any of the film's viewers, whether you live in Oregon or not, to deny there's a strong vision on screen..."

"The avant-garde storytelling is actually not unlike Steve McQueen's excellent "Hunger." The films are quite different, but what they share is a knack for evoking a specific time and place, mostly through atmosphere and visuals."
