Welcome to the Northwest Film Center’s 34th Portland International Film Festival. This year’s PIFF features much that is new and much that is familiar—a felicitous mix that we hope will make for 17 days of exciting experiences and eye-opening discoveries.

This year we’re expanding into the city with screenings at Cinemagic, the Hollywood Theater, and Cinema 21, in addition to our traditional downtown venues. Adding to the social scene will be two great new places to talk (and drink) cinema: the PIFF Lounge at Nel Centro and PIFFbar across from Cinemagic.

For 17 days, the world will come to us in film. We hope you’ll discover something you’ve never seen before—we hope you find true illumination. Go explore and tell us what you discover.

Bill Foster, Director, Northwest Film Center
