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.

Join us for an evening of poignant short films, about the myths and realities of homelessness, created by young adults transitioning from struggle to self-sufficiency. Mentored by Northwest Film Center faculty for the last three months, the youth have worked in front of and behind the camera to tell these personal stories of struggle and hope for the future. Many of the young filmmakers will be in attendance to reflect on their experience and take questions from the audience.
