In 1983, Tim McVey claimed the highest score ever achieved on a classic video game. The game in question was Nibbler, an obscure title that allows for marathon sessions of 40+ hours. Now in his forties, and with his title bested by another player, Tim undertakes the challenge of reconquering the mountain that is Nibbler. “While Man vs. Snake owes a certain thematic debt to The King of Kong, it is its own film, one whose universal appeal should go beyond the ranks of video-game lovers to anyone who understands that primal need for greatness.” – Matt Singer, Screen Crush.

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.
