PIFF 36 Posters for Sale: Limited Quantities Available

Anna PIFF 36 poster

 

The 36th Portland International Film Festival might be over, but we’ve got a way for you to keep flaunting your enthusiasm for it.  There’s a very limited stock of full-size posters hanging around the Film Center.  And, get this, we’re asking a mere $10/a piece for them.  How’s that for a deal?

These posters are absolutely appropriate for framing (a few of our patrons have already told us that they’ve done as much) or tossing directly on the wall of your dorm, rumpus room, man-cave, and/or hobby space.

Posters can be purchased by either stopping by the front desk at the School of Film (934 SW Salmon Ave.) or at our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum) before or during any of our screenings.  At only ten smackers, it’s almost like we’re giving ’em away!
