STEPHANIE HOUGH is an experimental filmmaker whose work explores repetition, gender, relationships and emotional landscapes. A graduate of Portland State University and the Film Center’s Certificate Program in Film, she is the director of the short film HEART, shot on 16mm, which has screened in the NW Filmmakers’ Festival, Portland International Film Festival, at the TriBeca Film Center, BendFilm and other venues, and SPOOKY ACTION AT A DISTANCE, shot on super 8mm, featured as part of the Film Center’s GLOBAL CLASSROOM series, and appearing on Lower Boom Presents’ tv channel at the Eastlund Hotel. As the Equipment Manager for the Film Center, she provides technical support to students of all levels and to community members renting equipment for personal and non-profit use.



The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
