MUSEUM AND NWFC CLOSED: The Portland Art Museum and Northwest Film Center are closed in an effort to further stem the spread of COVID-19. All public programs, screenings, and events are canceled until further notice. Stay connected to art, film, and more by signing up for our newsletter.

The Northwest Film Center is dedicated to providing a venue to screen meritorious independent film and video, especially those made by filmmakers of the Northwest. Northwest residents (Alaska, British Columbia, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington State) may enter their work in the Northwest Filmmakers’ Festival at any time during the year; entries will also be considered for our ongoing Northwest Tracking series. Follow the links below for information and entry forms for our various exhibition programs.
