END-OF-YEAR DEADLINE—Submit Your Film Today!

Directors Coffee Chat at Powell's Books during the 2018 Portland Film Festival

The Portland Film Festival established itself as Portland’s leading film non-profit, with hundreds of screenings, events, education programs and community partnerships providing a unique opportunity for our diverse audience to connect with filmmakers working in all different genres and forms.

In addition, our festivals hosts dozens of film and television professionals, offering filmmakers a chance to forge new relationships across the industry.

Featuring a rich program of films in the Fiction, Non-Fiction, World Cinema, Transmedia, VR,  Short and Student Filmmaking categories, as well as a program dedicated to the work of filmmakers from Oregon, the Portland Festival offers emerging and established artists to present their films in a world-class screening environment, with curated competitions, Audience Awards, and opportunities to reach attending members of the national press.

Daily Events and Filmmaker Activities
Every day of the Festival, we host director coffee chats for the public, giving Portland a great opportunity to learn more about your film and process. This past year we hosted it at the world’s most popular book store, Powell’s. There are also plenty of opportunities for attending filmmakers to be included on workshop and panel offerings too. Don’t miss the daily party or our filmmaker lounge!

Past Attendees & Alumni
Aisha Tyler, Mario Van Peebles, Joe Dante, Sam Hamm, Mark Boone Junior, Eli Roth, Justin Long, Haley Joel Osment, Abby Elliott, Chris Williams, Chuck Palahniuk, Jason Mamoa, Doug Benson, Josh McDermott, Jim O’Heir, Vanna White, Leslie Dixon and more.

Portland Film Festival Location
Hosted in one centralized location in Portland, its public transportation and accessibility are matched by very few cities. Portland offers a relaxed community and quirky environment with sophisticated audiences deeply engaged in the art of film.

Statistics on Last Year’s Festival
Last year, over 97% of our programmed films were selected from paid submissions. Submit your film today and join us for the annual Portland Film Festival, coming in October, 2019!
