40th Portland International Film Festival

  • February 9, 2017 — February 26, 2017

Since 1977, the Portland International Film Festival has been the Northwest Film Center’s annual showcase of new world cinema. Over three weeks in February, through the exhibition of nearly 100 feature films and 60+ short films, PIFF audiences across the City of Portland travel the globe in theater seats through our celebration of the world’s filmmakers and cinephiles.
