The World Comes to Us in Film.
The Northwest Film Center announces the 33rd Portland International Film Festival (PIFF), its annual cinematic foray of thought-provoking, engaging and entertaining works from around the globe. Over the last 33 years, the Festival has screened diverse and innovative films for thousands of people from throughout the Northwest. This year’s Festival will showcase 117 compelling new films, from three dozen countries, including regional work, to an audience of more than 35,000.
The Festival opens Thursday, February 11, at the Newmark Theater in the Portland Center for the Performing Arts (PCPA) with the Italian film I Am Love, directed by Luca Guadagnino and starring Oscar-winner Tilda Swinton (Michael Clayton, Burn After Reading, The Deep End). The film’s score is provided by minimalist musician John Adams. Following the screening is an opening night party in the lobby of the Newmark Theater.
