Cinema Unbound Awards

June 22, 2023 all-day

PAM CUT // Center for an Untold Tomorrow is hosting the 4th annual Cinema Unbound Awards on June 22, 2023, highlighting artists, innovators, and leaders who are not content to be contained.

Working at the intersection of art and cinematic storytelling in all its forms, this year’s recipients Fred Armisen, Guillermo del Toro, Gregory Gourdet, Jon Raymond, Jacqueline Stewart, and Tessa Thompson will be honored at an in-person event at the Portland Art Museum in Portland, Oregon on June 22, 2023.

This year, the awards will feature a culinary take-over by Gregory Gourdet’s 2023 James Beard Foundation Award finalist for “Best New Restaurant,” Kann. The Haitian live-fire restaurant was recently named the #1 “Best New Restaurant in America” by Esquire and one of the top 50 new restaurants in America by The New York Times.

The Cinema Unbound Awards, presented by the PAM CUT, annually celebrates those who strive to think bigger, try new things, and push forward to transform the field and the world. The Awards honor storytellers who use their creative vision to expand the reach of cinema as an art form to challenge for whom, by whom, and how stories can be told.
