Plan Your Stay


We’re glad you’re here! If you're planning to come for a whole weekend, consider purchasing an Out of Town Pass! You'll get your all-access pass to the PIFF films for one of the three weekends of the festival + discount room rates at the Hotel Eastlund.

Even if you don't opt for the Out of Town Pass, we recommend staying with one of the Festival’s hotel sponsors for great access to Festival venues. 


Getting to Portland and Around Town

Why drive when you can catch a ride to Portland from Amtrak Cascades?

Don't worry about driving and parking. Use promo code PIFF39 for $20 toward your first trip with Uber!!

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


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.
