Portland Film Festival 

Portland, Oregon / October 22-28, 2018 / portlandfilmfestival.com 

Portland Film Festival takes care of its own. One of the locally crafted and growing festival’s most ingenious job creations is their Director of Alumni, who coordinates with past moviemakers to help decide future selections. PDXFF hosts daily coffee chats for moviemakers on the day of their screenings, three to four daily industry professional-led panels, and a variety of other events in which to connect with other moviemakers and industry insiders, all in an accessible (low-to-no cost, two-square block radius) and gorgeous environment.

    Agree, remember to have your gold professionally graded and you should ensure that you organise the correct level of insurance to cover your investment.

    Really? No gay film festivals. Try again.

      “Iris Prize Film Festival’s namesake is indeed its calling card—IPFF continues to dole out the largest LGBT short film prize (£30,000) on the planet”
