The Portland Film Festival is currently seeking homestays for visiting filmmakers this September 1-7. Housing is needed from August 30th to September 8th, although individual needs will vary. Many filmmakers will be staying at one of our sponsor hotels, Mark Spencer and McMenamins Crystal Hotel, but some are on small budgets and can just use a safe place to stay.
PDXFF is a non-profit organization dedicated to nurturing filmmakers and audiences, and to celebrating the power of a good story. By offering free to low cost housing, we aim to uphold our efforts in fostering striving filmmakers and ultimately bringing more filmmakers to Portland.
The generosity of hosts are an essential link to our guests’ attendance. Last year we had over 247 visiting filmmakers representing over 145 films. In exchange for hosting a filmmaker, we will be offering festival tickets and passes to participants.
If interested, please send a brief response including your name, phone number, address, email through our contact form. Representatives will come to your home for a preliminary meeting prior to the festival.
