Portland International Film Festival

February 5, 2015 – February 21, 2015 all-day

The Northwest Film Center’s annual showcase of new world cinema—Oregon’s largest film event—takes over screens throughout the Portland metro area with more than 150 feature and short films from three dozen countries. Film lovers of all persuasions will find something inviting in this year’s rich selection of new works by established masters and new directors, provocative documentaries, award- winning shorts and animation, family films, Best Foreign Language Oscar submissions, “Midnight Madness” selections, visiting directors, and more. The centerpiece of this year’s program is an exciting showcase of Hispanic language films featuring new works from Spain, Mexico, Argentina, Colombia, Venezuela and other Latin American countries presented in conjunction with Cine-Lit VIII (February 19–21), a national conference on Hispanic film and literature co-produced with the foreign language department of Portland State University, Oregon State University, and the University of Oregon.

The Portland International Film Festival is sponsored by The Oregonian, Regal Cinemas, LAIKA, Delta Air Lines, James F. Marion Miller Foundation, and many others. Tickets for the festival go on sale at nwfilm.org January 23.
