May 6-10 PDX Film Fest 8

If you make films, where do you show them? If you are a filmmaker where do you exchange inspiration? If you are a viewer, where do you go for a challenge? Growing out of Peripheral Produce shows, the film festival is known for quiet films which don't necessarily conform to Hollywood's narrative norms. Highlights include video installations at Gallery Homeland, karaoke to experimental film at Holocene, the World Championship of Experimental Cinema, a competition judged by you, the audience. There are programs of shorts, features, retrospectives and new work. You can see the schedule for details. At the Clinton Street Theater and other locations. $40 festival pass, $7 individual events
