(PORTLAND, OR) – The Northwest Film Center is excited to announce an innovative new addition to this year’s Northwest Filmmakers’ Festival. To compliment the festival, the very first Northwest Filmmakers’ Expo will bring together buyers and users of filmmaking equipment and services with top regional and international vendors offering a hands-on look at their latest technology and the multitude of filmmaking resources available. Already confirmed vendors include Canon, Zeiss, JVC, Panasonic, and Sony among many others.

While drawing heavily from film and video industry professionals, the Expo—built into the 42nd Northwest Filmmakers’ Festival (named one of the top 25 Coolest Film Festivals by Moviemaker Magazine) —will also be a different breed of Expo with many of the top creative agencies in the Northwest also contributing their time and ideas to make this an Expo like no other, one uniquely suited to the Portland creative film community.

The Expo will wrap up at 5pm followed by the 42nd Northwest Filmmakers’ Festival’s Opening Night program of short films next door at the Northwest Film Center’s Whitsell Auditorium, and closing the day with the Festival’s Opening Night Party with plenty of filmmakers, music, drinks and an out-of-jury premiere screening of Lower Boom’s JOAN.
