Virtual Programming

While it's not the same as sitting together in a cinema, the Northwest Film Center will continue to curate new films and programs that allow our audiences to discover new voices and stories that might not otherwise be heard. Focusing on work that changes for whom, by whom, and how cinematic stories are told, the monthly featured films will be offered at a range of price points to our members and new audiences. International, documentary, animation, new media, and independent films will all be on offer, transporting us to worlds real and imagined. Your ticket will directly support both the Northwest Film Center and Portland Art Museum, and we encourage all of our members, staff, and supporters to join us—and spread the word to all who love a great story well told.

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.
