Join us as we screen and celebrate the achievements of this year’s matriculating School of Film Certificate Program students. Each filmmaker will present the short narrative film that they have created as the culminating effort of their studies. Lev Yarborough’s PERFORMING LIVES reveals the lives and talents of gifted young performance artists; Geoff Peterson’s MANGO follows a confident psychic who challenges a skeptical non-believer; Josh Westra’s INBOUND follows a call center employee who is stalked by incoming calls; and Alex Maroney’s THEY HAVE ARRIVED shows a man who loses his best friend to powers from the beyond. These final projects showcase the skill and voice that each individual has developed through class exercises, visiting artist sessions, group projects, faculty advising, and extracurricular pursuits. (90 mins.)
A reception honoring the filmmakers begins at 6:30 PM in the Andrée Stevens Room.
NW Film Center School of Film presents CERTIFIABLY YOURS: NEW FILMS FROM THE SCHOOL OF FILM on Sunday, November 3 at 7:30pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum).
