Metro’s Let’s Talk Trash events are designed to engage the public in discussions about how the greater Portland region can best manage its garbage in the future.

As part of its Let’s Talk Trash series, Metro challenged local filmmakers to create short films (10 minutes or less) about garbage: Where does garbage go once it leaves the curb? Where should it go? What happens to garbage? How can or could technology affect garbage? What does garbage do for us? Or what could it do?

Tonight we view a selection of the films submitted and the audience will pick the winning entry. The winning filmmaker will take home $500.



Screening preceded by a 6pm reception
Co-presented by Metro.
