The #OregonMade Creative Foundation has teamed up with four of the best independent cinemas located in all four of the quadrants of Portland, Northwest Film Center, The Hollywood Theatre, Clinton Street Theatre and Cinema 21, to enact a program designed to give locally produced, #OregonMade feature length films a short theatrical distribution window in the city. Screenings will consist of a four day run, with one night at each theatre, in the four “quadrants” of Portland: The Portland Circuit.
The next Circuit dates are November 18-21, 2019.
Previous #OregonMade titles that have had a theatrical run in Portland through the Circuit include Jon Garcia’s “Sex Weather,” James La Gros and Kevin Corrigan in “Phoenix, Oregon” and the multi-part documentary about the stories found in the city’s trees, “Canopy Stories.”
If you have a project that could be a good fit for this series, the Circuit is accepting submissions through Sept. 13. Please visit this page for more information and guidelines on how to apply.
Although no fee is charged to the selected film itself, box office profits beyond the venue rental fee will be split with the filmmakers. Filmmakers are expected to help market and publicize the screenings.
