Washington 2015 100 mins. In English

Dennis decides to leave the hustle and bustle behind to start his own village in the forest. Dennis’s village, however, is not a modern one, but rather straight out of the middle ages and populated with a knight, bar wench, town fool, wizard, and more. The only issue is who also wishes to leave city life behind for the good old days? Enter the larger cast of The Village of Middlevale who hilariously accept these roles with vigor and pride as they embark on a quest to see their village succeed, even if it means taking on the modern town’s ren-fair troupe. Small budget but big laughs. (100 mins.)

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.
