March 5 – March 19, 2020

Starting in November 2019, we’re integrating the 46th Northwest Filmmakers’ Festival into the 43rd Portland International Film Festival (PIFF43), thereby creating a more robust and sustainable platform in which to bring together regional film artists—who will be able to premiere and present their work in a broader context—with global filmmakers, sparking conversation and fostering connection both through their film work and through extensive dialogue. By integrating the two festivals, we also intend to provide a more robust launch pad for regional filmmakers’ work into the wider festival circuit and film distribution system both nationally and globally.

Deadline to submit is November 15.

The new dates will be March 5 – March 19, 2020.

For regional filmmakers, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, British Columbia, and Alaska, it is FREE to submit below, it is $2 to submit via Film Freeway.

Notifications will be made in January 2020.
