PAM CUT // Center for an Untold Tomorrow is a vital part of the Portland Art Museum. It’s a place to influence perspectives and celebrate storytelling near and far. Our mission is to change how cinematic stories are told — expanding on who’s telling and who’s watching.
PAM CUT reaches beyond a single medium or platform and explores what’s next. We support media artists to redefine cinema and visual storytelling.
- Non-traditional, unbound screenings
- Co:Laboratory adult & youth classes and workshops
- Robust artist services programs
Our Portland, OR-based hub aims to expand the reach of cinema as an art form. We celebrate a wide range of storytelling experiences that challenge traditional boundaries.
We’re inclusive, modern and welcoming to a broad range of artists and audiences across all media art. We act as advocates to support pioneering, multi-faceted storytellers.
