Over the past four years, local and international artists have created over 50 public murals in the city of Portland through the Forest For The Trees project. With dozens of paintings permanently adorning the walls of the city, Forest For The Trees wanted to give these artists an opportunity to share work through new mediums. This year, Forest For The Trees has expanded its programming beyond the still image, by inviting a handful of current and past participants, as well as local filmmakers, to share original short films. The lineup includes first time filmmakers, award-winning directors, painters, sculptors, illustrators, muralists and animators.
The following artists are included in this program: Aaron Glasson & Celeste Byers, Camille Rose Garcia, El Popo Sangre, Gage Hamilton & Nesto, Gus Van Sant, JJ Peterson & Bryan Rudd, Molly Bounds, Spencer Keeton Cunningham, Souther Salazar.
