Join us for an extra special 45th Northwest Filmmakers’ Festival Opening Night celebration at the Portland Art Museum’s Fields (Sunken) Ballroom, with Portland band The OK Chorale PDX, featuring special guests, The Goods, made up of Lara Michele, Little Sir and Sarah King, who, along with the rest of this band of professional musicians will lead partygoers in songs by dead musicians. In addition to this sing-a-along séance, there will be costume contests with prizes, food, drink, an array of masquerading monsters, large-scale interactive sets including a séance room with special guests Vera Mysteria and Lady Stockholm, pop up performance from Nina Nightshade, video mapping from Invisible Thread, and guest Dj’s DDDJJJ666 and Magnolia Bouvier.  All this and more put together by a team of incredibly talented Portland art directors and designers including Ryan Bruce, Darcy Sharpe, Ira Pratt and the folks at Form 3d Foundry.  *A ticket to the opening night film will also get you into this spooky awesome party.
