Friday Film Club – Portraits

  • April 8, 2016 — June 10, 2016

The theme of our second Friday Film Club discussion series is PORTRAITS—literal, narrative, existential and cinematic. Friday Film Club screenings are presented monthly when the Portland Art Museum’s galleries are open late on Friday evenings. Each screening is accompanied by a post-film discussion led by Film Center staff and Art Museum docents, in which a work from the Art Museum galleries is utilized to spark dialogue and debate about the film. Special Admission: $5.

Sponsored by Pacific University Master of Fine Arts in Writing.
