Welcome to the Northwest Film Center’s 36th annual showcase of new world cinema. The Portland International Film Festival seeks to explore the diversity of not only the art of film, but of the world around us.

On a larger level, the Festival also connects community, bringing together culturally diverse audiences, a remarkable cross-section of cinematic voices, public and private arts funders, corporate sponsors, global film industry members, hundreds of individual volunteers, and thousands of audience members.

We hope that this year’s 135 films—92 features and 43 shorts—reward with fresh surprise and discovery. Enjoy. Steep.

Bill Foster, Director, Northwest Film Center
