Plan Your PIFF

In between Opening Night and Closing Night, join us every night at our new social hub, the PIFF Lounge at Nel Centro. Grab a quick bite before or after a screening, chat up your fellow film lovers (flash your schedule, then your smile), check the Festival's update board, and enjoy featured drink specials from our sponsors. The PIFF Lounge is open February 11-26, Sunday-Thursday 4-11 p.m., and Friday and Saturday 4 p.m.-12 a.m. We've heard the PIFFtini is pretty good...

On the East Side? Drop into our pop-up space, the PIFFbar (located across the street from new Festival venue Cinemagic) before your movie and see who else thinks Thai food, Chilean film, and Belgian lagers make for a perfect evening. Thanks to Thai Mama for providing the food. The PIFFbar is open February 18-24, 5:30-10:30 p.m. daily.

We're glad you're here! We recommend staying with one of the Festival's hotel sponsors for great access to Festival venues. The Hotel Modera, adjoining the Festival's social hub Nel Centro, would be a convenient and comfortable choice for those who want to be in the middle of everything PIFF. The Hotel deLuxe, Ace Hotel, and The Nines are also all conveniently located downtown and near all the action.



For those looking for other things to do besides PIFF, Travel Portland is an excellent resource for everything happening in Portland.

Need help getting around? Portland has great public transportation! Find your way around using TriMet, or if you feel like being in the driver’s seat, visit Zipcar.

And for getting here and back, we highly recommend patronizing our Festival airline sponsors, Alaska Air and Delta Airlines.
