Portland Film Festival
Portland, Oregon / October 14-20, 2019 / portlandfilmfestival.com
There may be thousands of film festivals, but there’s only one Portland. Rose City’s hip, laid-back atmosphere is part of the Portland Film Festival’s appeal. What other festival can boast daily moviemaker coffee chats at the world’s largest independent bookstore, Powell’s Books? Or a party for moviemakers at the historic Pittock Mansion? There are also daily networking events. These offerings allow accepted moviemakers to communicate with enthusiastic audiences, fellow artists, and movie industry pros. The festival is an eclectic blend of submitted and curated films, and usually generates a good deal of press interest.
