The fifth annual Cinema Pacific Festival starts on April 23, and the complete festival program is available online at http://cinemapacific.uoregon.edu. (A handy guide is downloadable here.)
Richard Herskowitz, Director of Cinema Pacific says, “This year I’m particularly excited about our partnership with UO Libraries on the James Blue Project, supplementing the exciting new archive of UO alumnus James Blue’s work that is being donated to Special Collections. Also, Cinema Pacific is working closely with the Schnitzer Museum on an array of live performances, panels, and media installations featuring Portland-based media artist Vanessa Renwick, titled Art for Endangered Species, as well as the annual new media exhibition and party, the Fringe Festival. At the Fringe Fest on April 25 this year, we’re going to join with Oregon Story Board in presenting the upcoming video game by Eugene-based Pipeworks, Godzilla Smash 3. As always, 36 Oregon filmmakers will be featured in our annual Adrenaline Film Project with returning lead mentor Jeff Wadlow (“Kick Ass 2”). Finally, with UO Journalism and the Northwest Film Center, we are shuttling special guests, including eminent ethnographic filmmaker David MacDougall, and comics artist Jung, between Eugene and the “What is Documentary?” conference in Portland from April 24-26.”
