Made in Portland: Selections from the Portland Music Video Festival

  • Directed by Various
  • United States, 80 mins.

Music videos are the ultimate marriage of art and commerce; a breeding ground for up-and-coming filmmakers experimenting with their craft; a visual means of expression for musicians, singers, and songwriters; and the forum in which many of the greatest innovations in film and television production have started. The Portland Music Video Festival is dedicated to celebrating the production of the music video and nurturing the great partnership between the music and filmmaking communities in Portland and across the country. Curated and presented by PMVF director Dustin Morrow, this program of highlights from this year’s festival includes videos by Portland filmmakers including Stefan Nadelman, Alicia J. Rose, and Daniel Fickle and videos from well-known Portland bands including Mean Jeans, Sallie Ford, Lost Lander, and the Portland Cello Project, plus plenty of fresh surprises.
