Welcome to the 37th Portland International Film Festival

Welcome to the Northwest Film Center’s 37th annual showcase of new world cinema! The Portland International Film Festival explores not only the art of film but also the world around us. The cultural diversity, the extraordinary range of subjects, genres, and experiences explored—for all ages and from matinee to midnight—invite exploration and discovery, movie-lover or not. We welcome you to join in this shared cinematic and community experience.

Among that community are numerous generous sponsors, funders, community partners, and hundreds of dedicated volunteers and industry supporters, all of whom make this Festival possible. We thank them for their many contributions.

May this year’s 128 films—104 features and 24 shorts—take you someplace you’ve never been. Enjoy!


Bill Foster, Director, Northwest Film Center
