Filmmaker Welcome Reception & Champagne Toast (Open to the Public)

Champagne Toast & Filmmaker Reception at Portland Film Festival, Portland, Oregon

To celebrate the independent spirit and importance of creative arts in Portland, Oregon, the public is invited to walk the red carpet, meet visiting and local filmmakers and toast with a glass of champagne and hors d’oeuvres the opening of the 2018 Portland Film Festival presented by Comcast NBC Universal.

The event is free to attend and includes readings of both Oregon Governor Kate Brown’s and Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler’s proclamations celebrating film. Also in attendance will be Oregon State Senator (and crew member from The Goonies) Betsy Johnson, Oregon AFL-CIO President Tom Chamberlain as well as other important industry leaders.

Over 500 Portlanders and visiting guests attended last year’s event. The filmmaker reception included over 150 directors and producers from last year’s roster of films, making it the largest film industry event held annually in the State of Oregon. This year’s event promises to be bigger than ever.

The Portland Film Festival is setting aside proceeds from tickets sales at this year’s Festival to benefit other local organizations with roots in Portland and Oregon. The evening will include a presentation of checks to two local non-profit organizations.
