Alaska 80 mins.

The Juneau Underground Motion Picture Society (JUMP), is Juneau’s premier independent film organization. Though their creative spirit and energy more than 500 locally made short films have been produced and screened since 2002. Tonight we welcome filmmaker and JUMP Society director Pat Race as he introduces a program of some of the vibrant films to come out of their community. Included in the program are Frankie, by Corin Hughes-Skandijs, about a trash loving bear; The State of the Budget, by Alaska Robotics, a suspense-driven comedy about political process; Right in Front of You, by George Kuhar, a music video featuring Juneau residents as members of the band “Playboy Spaceman,” and much, much more.

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.
