POW Film Fest is Portland’s premiere film festival showcasing the work of women and non-binary directors. Now in its 14th year, the festival features some of today’s top directors, while honoring the true pioneers and recognizing the next generation of leading filmmakers. Over the years POW has striven to encourage thoughtful and engaged discourse of the fem perspective while heralding the need for greater parity in the film industry through the keen and discerning eyes of women and non-binary film and media makers. POW was created, in part, to celebrate women in their quest to thrive and grow in the film industry.
The fest also provides a space to strengthen the Portland community of women and non-binary people in film by offering year-found film workshops for youth ages 15-19 with their POWGirls program.
