Festival Highlights


The Festival’s Global Classroom program serves as a point of introduction for the next generation of cinema lovers by enriching the high school classroom experience and broadening young people’s understanding of our world through film. With the support of the Harold and Arlene Schnitzer CARE Foundation, Hillman Family Foundation, Lamb Baldwin Foundation, Anne A. Berni Foundation, and Chipotle, the Festival will screen five of this year’s Festival selections for students and teachers at special weekday screenings at the Film Center’s Whitsell Auditorium. Contact Mia Ferm at 503-221-1156 x25 or for more information.


Join a hand-selected group of Oregon filmmakers for OUR MADE IN OREGON shorts program in the Whitsell Auditorium, followed by a Q&A facilitated by Ben Popp, NWFC's Filmmaker Services Manager and a hosted reception just down the block at the Film Center offices (934 SW Salmon Street)

Sponsored by Sierra Nevada, Elk Cove Winery and Montinore Estate.


Our late-night series—for the nocturnally inclined whose cinematic tastes are adventurous—offers special treats for devotees of genre films that push boundaries. All of the screenings take place at CINEMA 21.
