Don’t miss out on the Northwest Filmmakers festival in Portland

Northwest Filmmakers festival

Northwest Filmmakers Festival in Portland – The Northwest’s premiere showcase of new work by regional filmmakers, the Northwest Filmmakers’ Festival—for 38 years called the Northwest Film & Video Festival—brings artists and audiences together for a singular community celebration.

A juried survey of new moving image arts by independent filmmakers living in Northwest North America (Alaska State Fair, British Columbia, IdahoMontana festivals, Oregon and Washington State Fair). the Northwest Filmmakers Festival is the longest running regional Film Festival in the United States and exists to bring filmmakers together, provide and illuminate resources available to them and to offer a forum where their outstanding independent work receives public recognition, critical appraisal and engaged and enthusiastic regional audiences.

Each year the Festival draws more than 400 entries from filmmakers in Alaska, British Columbia, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington, presenting to the public carefully selected programs of outstanding work and awarding critical recognition to top juror- and audience-recognized films. After the Festival, the event lives on in the form of the “Best of the Northwest” touring program, presented at key cultural and educational organizations across the Northwest.

Artists who enter their work in the Northwest Filmmakers’Festival are never charged an entry fee and know that their work will be viewed and selections made by prominent voices of the international filmmaking community, which have included such past Judges as Directors Gus Van Sant, Todd Haynes and James Benning, Producer Christine Vachon and LA Times Film Critic, Kenneth Turan.

”The Best of the Northwest Filmmakers’ Festival,” a collection of short films curated annually, travels to cities and venues large and small throughout the region building audiences for the filmmakers from Klamath Falls, Oregon to Great Falls, Montana and inspiring the artistic nature of many who are not often exposed to such fiercely independent and innovative fair and prompting future Festival entries from potential filmmakers in the audiences. The Tour has traveled to over 80 venues in the Northwest alone, which has helped the Center promote filmmaking as an accessible means of self-expression and to gain visibility as a resource available to artists throughout the region.
