Oregon 2015 90 mins. In English

Showcasing films made in Southern Oregon and Northern California, the Klamath Independent Film Festival is presented each year by the Klamath Film Makers Group, a non-profit organization whose mission is to gather local filmmakers, and to nurture and promote a local filmmaking industry in and around the Klamath Basin.  This program includes Ross Williams’ Self Inflicted, “a darkly comic look at a sweet masochist who is looking for love in all the wrong places”—dailygrindouse; Mig Windows’ Not a Bench, grand jury prize winner at the 2015 festival about an introvert meeting an extrovert on a park bench; and Klamath Film Makers Group member Jesse Widener’s Bare the Sun, amongst a parade of other wonderful short films. Klamath Film Makers Group President Robin Smith will be in attendance to introduce the program.

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.
