KINO is excited to share with Oregon filmmakers the KINO Short Film Fest. Proudly sponsored by Panavision and Final Draft. Top prizes include the Judge’s Choice Award of $25,000 and the People’s Choice Award of $5,000. Filmmakers also have the chance for KINO (a Film Finance Company) to transform their short film (or another idea) into a full-length feature film. No other film festival offers this.
In our Monthly Film Series, we will show a variety of GERMAN or GERMAN language films from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. On the 2nd Tuesday of each month, audiences will now have a chance to see these films on a regular basis at the CLINTON STREET THEATER. (Children’s movies will be playing on Sunday afternoons – please check our website.) All films are with English subtitles.
Winner of Best LGBTQ Feature Film (Seattle Film Festival), POCKET MOUSE PROTECTOR brings its zany humor to Clinton Street Theater on November 5th, 2022.
Starring Portland talent James Sharinghousen, Eleanor O’Brien, Blake Stone, Jonas Israel, Yelena King, Daniel Villarreal, and Paul Bright, the movie is a send-up of screwball comedies from the 20s, 30s, and 70s.
Environmentalist Larry takes an experimental virility drug to woo back his wife Mary who’s having an affair with Barry who works for Thierry who plans to destroy the remaining habitat of the endangered pocket mouse.
Traditionally held in Ashland, Oregon, the Killer Valley Comedy Film Festival will stream virtually through their website for one more year, as live theaters still struggle with opening up to a viewing public in 2021.
