Welcome to the Northwest Film Center’s 35th annual showcase of new world cinema. The Portland International Film Festival (PIFF) seeks to explore the diversity of not only the art of film, but also the world around us.

This year’s PIFF presents 93 feature and 46 short films from more than three dozen countries, in an inspiring, eclectic snapshot of recent international cinema that we hope will stimulate your filmgoing well beyond the Festival itself. As part of the Film Center’s 40th Anniversary Season, we continue to look forward to the new more than celebrating the past, as we consider the role that film and the Film Center play in animating the regional cultural community.

Bill Foster, Director, Northwest Film Center
