Celebrating 5 years of the Portland Film Festival
PORTLAND, Ore. —
Whether you love being behind the camera or in front of it, head to the 5th Annual Portland Film Festival.
Executive Director Joshua Leake says it's a festival made by filmmakers, for filmmakers. They screen 185 films from Portland and around the world at the historic Laurelhurst Theater.
But you won't just be sitting in a movie theater seat. There are more than 250 events, including parties, panels and workshops, also tied to the festival. You can learn how to execute your best possible audition, tell a story with your body, work with a talent agent, see live- action stunt demonstrations, and a lot more.
You might even meet actors from Sons of Anarchy, Friends and Indiana Jones. Leake says this film festival is different because it attracts a younger and more diverse audience.
"We tend to have more of a social environment. We do a lot of parties, we do a lot of networking. This year, we're flying in over 24 professionals from around the world."
