THE 35TH YOUNG PEOPLE’S FILM FESTIVAL

Sat, Nov 19, 2011
at 1 PM (Whitsell Auditorium)

THE 35TH YOUNG PEOPLE’S FILM FESTIVAL

YOUTH

For 35 years, the Northwest Film Center’s annual Young People’s Film Festival has celebrated the next generation of regional filmmakers—children and teens in grades K-12 from throughout the Northwest—by showcasing their work and circulating it around the region. Celebrating originality, freshness, authenticity, and conviction in the voices of young mediamakers, the Festival is divided into two sections: a Kids’ Division of works created by youth in grades K-8 and the focus of today’s program, a Teen Division of works by youth in grades 9-12. Created as independent projects, classroom assignments, and/or personal narratives, often with community partners, these documentary, animated,...

TREEVERSE

DIRECTOR: JOHN WALLER - OREGON (PORTLAND)

(DOC) On March 23, 2011, Brian French and Will Koonijian set off on an unprecedented one-kilometer canopy trek through an old growth Oregon white oak forest. Their journey would involve packing all their equipment and belongings with them, traveling unsupported, and never touching the ground. On a five-day journey marked by predictably unpredictable weather, fatigue, and seemingly impossible gaps between trees, success depended on teamwork, innovation, and a fair bit of luck.

Screening follows BETWEEN ROOMS AND VOICES.

HOW THE FIRE FELL

DIRECTOR: E.P. DAVEE - OREGON (PORTLAND)

(NAR) “Joe Haege (31 Knots frontman and part-time Menomena member) stars as preacher Edmund Creffield in Davee’s ambitious debut feature about the turn-of-the-20th-century Corvallis-based cult Bride of Christ Church. Shot on Super-16mm film for a mere $50,000, HOW THE FIRE FELL nails the necessary subtleties of period detail—it never feels like Davee rallied his buddies for a weekend of dress-up—and sustains a vibe of creeping dread throughout, thanks in large part to Scott Ballard’s crepuscular black-and-white photography and a plangent score by Haege and John Askew that recalls the apocalypse aperitifs of A Silver Mt. Zion.”—Willlamette Week

THE OREGONIAN

DIRECTOR: CALVIN LEE REEDER - WASHINGTON (SEATTLE)

(NAR) “There is a place where the skies are wide and the forests are thick and strange. You can lose yourself forever in these woods. Here live troubled truckers and old women with strange powers. You may even make a furry friend. Just be sure to stay quiet. Spend some time with a woman from Oregon who is lost on the road and running away from her past. Now she has a chance to experience everything the Northwest has to offer, whether she likes it or not. If you know Calvin Lee Reeder’s short films LITTLE FARM and RAMBLER, you...
