Attention Filmmakers: Sign Up for Un-Conference (formerly BarCamp) at the 40th Northwest Filmmakers’ Festival


Saturday, November 9, 10 a.m.–4 p.m.
Miller Gallery, Mark Building, Portland Art Museum, 1119 SW Park Ave.

The Northwest Filmmakers’ Un-Conference (previously BarCamp) is organized by filmmakers/participants for filmmakers/participants. The process begins preceding the Festival when participants come together online to introduce themselves, suggest topics, and explore discussion ideas. Past sessions have included conversations on self-distribution, archiving work, navigating festivals, building social communities, and more. This is an event where novice filmmakers might meet their next crew and accomplished filmmakers might meet their inspiration. The Northwest has a wealth of filmmaking resources—none as invaluable as the filmmakers themselves—so pull up a chair and take part. Breakfast will be provided by KIND Healthy Snacks and lunch vouchers offered by Chipotle Mexican Grill. Contact Festival Manager Thomas Phillipson at to connect with your comrades-in-film.



Festival sponsors and supporters include The Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, the James F. & Marion L. Miller Foundation, LAIKA, Art Works, Oregon Cultural Trust, smart center Portland, Wieden + Kennedy, McMenamins, Pro Photo Supply, The Jackson Foundation, Willamette Week, Mission Control, Kind Healthy Snacks, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Honest Tea, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co., Funnelbox Production Studios, Koerner Camera Systems, Oregon Film, Stumptown Coffee Roasters, KZME, and Poster Child Events.
