You may not need us to point this out for you, but we’ll go ahead and make it painfully obvious [just for good measure]. This is an exciting month. Super exciting. Because this Thursday, the NW Film Center’s 36th Annual Portland International Film Festival (PIFF) begins [guns blazing], and will continue to amaze and entertain until Saturday, February 23rd. PIFF will take place at a number of venues throughout the city this year including Whitsell Auditorium, Cinema 21, Newmark Theatre and Cinemagic, just to name a few. View the full venue list here to see if your favorite theater will host one of the 135 films (92 features and 43 shorts) that will be shown at PIFF this year.
Opening night will be kicked off with the sensational BLANCANIEVES [Spain | 7:30 p.m. | Newmark Theatre]. Remember to stick around after the screening for the Opening Night Party, hosted by Stella Artois and King Estate Winery.
All this is only the tip of the iceberg. To learn more about PIFF festivities, purchase tickets to the event, or download the PDF schedule, visit nwfilm.org.
