“Our program is coming along splendidly and we’ve found a few tracts that will be of importance,” added Portland Film Festival Executive Director, Joshua Leake. “Last year over 52% of our films were from female directors—we had more female directors than any other film festival in the state—it’s an important goal of our festival to better represent our community.”
