PIFF 36: Get Ready for Oregon’s Biggest Film Event

PIFF 36 Opening Night film: THE SAPPHIRES

PIFF 36 Opening Night film: THE SAPPHIRES

We’ve just leaked our first big festival news for next year’s 36th Portland International Film Festival.  The festival runs from February 7-23, 2013 and will bring more than 125 features, documentaries, and short films to the Portland area.  Audiences can expect to thrill over cinematic treats from around the world, as well as films made in our own backyard by members of Portland’s thriving filmmaking community.

Among the titles revealed is our opening night presentation, the hit Australian film THE SAPPHIRES, a period piece set in the golden era of rock ‘n’ roll girl groups starring Chris O’Dowd (BRIDESMAIDS, THE IT CROWD).  Check out the other titles we’ve announced by reading the Oregonian article here.  And, of course, keep your eyes on the Newsroom for any future announcements concerning PIFF 36, the School of Film, and our year-round programming.

You’re probably wondering when and where you’ll be able to purchase tickets for next year’s festival.  Festival tickets don’t go on sale until end of January but you can get your PIFF Pass early and beat the crowds! A PIFF pass is a Director Level membership at the NW Film Center. In addition to the benefits of not waiting in Festival lines and getting in free to the Opening Party, you can enjoy cinema year-round and get exclusive invites. Buy your pass today and mark your calendar: http://www.nwfilm.org/donate/silverscreen/join.


  1. Any Chance that Darragh Byrne’s film PARKED will be featured any time soon?
