Certificate in Film Grad at Filmed by Bike and Clinton Street Theater

From the stellar group of 2015 Certificate in Film graduates of the Northwest Film Center, student Conrad Kaczor has two upcoming film events in town. In addition to being an emerging filmmaker, Kaczor is an active member of the dance communities here in Portland and often turns his lens on local dancers, blending body movement with a unique eye to the landscape and environment in which it is performed. His 2014 short film Bicycle Tut, which Kaczor made with friend and Portland Art Institute student Alex Beran, stars Kaczor riding his bicycle around the city while “tutting,” a form of dance or “popping.” The film will be screening as part of the Filmed by Bike Festival Friday, May 6 at 7 pm and is up for one of the festival’s Local Awards. Then next week, in collaboration with KBOO, Kaczor’s Certificate in Film final project entitled We’re From Here, will screen at the Clinton Street Theater along with a dance showcase featuring artists from his short documentary. We’re From Here profiles four leaders in the professional dance community, all born and raised in Portland, Oregon and who are each dedicated to a different dance style, including Popping, Bboying, House/Waacking, and Krumping.
