ON SALE NOW: Early-bird Passes for 2016 Portland Film Festival

Early-bird passes are now on sale for the 2016 Portland Film Festival. The early-bird prices will end soon. The eight-day festival and filmmaker conference will be held this August 29th to September 5th.

In 2015, the festival screened more independent films than any other film festival in the state. With over 435 visiting filmmakers, cast and crew representing their films to the over 18k attending audience, it’s no wonder that MovieMaker Magazine named the festival one of the “Top 25 Coolest Film Festivals in the World.”

This year, the festival will screen over 150 films and host over 75 workshops including tracts specifically for screenwriting, acting and more. Portland Mayor Charlie Hales has previously declared Portland as “the city of film” during the week-long festival. With support from the Oregon Governor’s Office of Film, Oregon Film, OMPA, IATSE, SAG AFTRA, Women in Film, Willamette Writers and other local organizations, this year’s festival will surely not be one to miss.

Executive Director Josh Leake added “our slate of films and the stories that our Director of Programming, Brad Wilke selected are outstanding. I can’t wait to share. And don’t miss any of the 75+ workshops, panels, classes, parties, networking events and special screenings. Our theme for this year’s festival is “Wild,” and we’ve invited several sculptors, multi-media, VR artists and more to explore storytelling during the festival.”
