Plan Your Stay


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, is a convenient and comfortable choice for those who want to be in the middle of everything PIFF. The Hotel deLuxe and the Heathman Hotel are also 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, and you can find your way by visiting Trimet at

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


In between movies, beers, and great food, stay connected through PIFF's social media outlets. Schedule updates, visiting artist information, party details, and discussion threads can all be found on the Northwest Film Center website, Newsroom Blog, Facebook, and Twitter.
