At the Northwest Film Center, we are reimagining what could be—both because of the changes to our world and in spite of them. We are reimagining cinematic storytelling, how stories are told, by whom and for whom. And we’re doing all of this alongside The Portland Art Museum as we have for nearly 50 years, which is where you’ll find membership information.

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.
