Join us as participants from the Tale in Two Minutes workshop display their newly-acquired pitching finery before a “jury” of notables from the 45th Northwest Filmmakers’ Festival community. Applaud their efforts (and potentially influence the outcome) as the competition culminates awarding of prizes for the top contenders (grand prize is a festival pass to PIFF, retail value $400!). An excellent way to witness the world of film project development and marketing. Filmmakers of all levels and general community members are welcome to attend this inside moment into the world of indie filmmaking.


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.
