The Portland Circuit -
A Local Film Distribution Project
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 announce a pilot 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.
Initial screening dates are set for October 2018 and February 2019.
**The film for the October 2019 slot has been chosen, read more about that here.
Proposals for projects for the February 2019 slot are still being accepted and considered.**
Other partners include Oregon Film, Lower Boom, POW Film Fest and Lawrence PR.
Filmmakers will be required to be present, introduce the film and conduct a follow-up Q&A at all four screenings. Local shorts may also be run prior to the main program.
Projects will be by invitation only through a small, and specially selected by a small Programming Group, administered by the OMCF, in partnership with the participating theatre venues. If you wish your project to be considered, please send to the OMCF;
- a short project description & private screener link (if possible)
- the running time ("feature length" is generally in excess of 60-70 mins)
- completion date
- key personnel involved
- your interest and ability to attract audiences to four Portland theaters over a one week period.
