This Sunday, May 27, the Dill Pickle Club hosts the third in its ongoing A Place Called Home lecture series on filmmaking in the City of Portland at the Clinton Street Theater. The program will feature talks and short films by three titans in the Portland film community: JIM BLASHFIELD (maker of videos for Michael Jackson and the Talking Heads — no joke!), BROOKE JACOBSON (Co-Founder of the NW Film Center, Portland State University professor) and MATT McCORMICK (you’d be hard-pressed to find another filmmaker whose films are so distinctly Northwest, or who has done as much to nurture the work of local makers). Check the events page for more info.
