THE 10-MINUTE RULE
Seats for advance ticket and pass holders are held until 10 minutes before showtime, when any unfilled seats are released to the public. Thus, advance tickets or passes ensure that you will not have to wait in the ticket purchase line but do not guarantee a seat in the case of arrival after the 10-minute window has begun. Your early arrival also helps get screenings started promptly. We appreciate your understanding. Advance ticket holders who arrive within the 10-minute window but are not seated may exchange their tickets for another screening at the Ticket Outlet or obtain a cash refund at the theater. There are no refunds or exchanges for late arrivals or for missed screenings.

Czech filmmakers have long been recognized for their innovative contributions to international cinema. The legacy of the Czech New Wave, the period of stylistic experimentation and social critique that accompanied political and social reforms in mid-1960s Czechoslovakia, still resonates in a new generation of voices offering skilled takes on diverse genres from comedy, gritty realist drama, and stylish period thrillers to animation and more. They share, however, a deft eye for lyric beauty and absurdist humor even among the most mundane or difficult circumstances, as they probe social and economic conditions, the legacy of Communism, and questions of Czech identity and culture. We are pleased to present this six-film selection of influential and emerging voices in Czech cinema in conjunction with the nationally touring program “Czech That Film” presented by Staropramen. Our special thanks go to Michal Sedlacek, Consul General of the Czech Republic in Los Angeles, for making their Portland presentation possible.

Welcome to the 21st annual Portland Jewish Film Festival, produced by the Northwest Film Center and co-presented with the Institute for Judaic Studies. While the Festival specifically celebrates the diversity of Jewish history, culture, and identity, we hope that these films and the stories they tell resonate beyond their settings and speak to experiences and issues that confront our common humanity.

Special thanks to our sponsors: Harold & Arlene Schnitzer CARE Foundation; BedMart; Cedar Sinai Park; Portland Chapter of Hadassah; Hasson Realty; the Holzman Foundation; Honest Tea; the Consulate General of Israel to the Pacific Northwest, San Francisco; Jerry Eckstein, CPA; Jewish Federation of Greater Portland; Paul and Joan Sher; J Street Portland; Mittleman Jewish Community Center; Oregon Israel Business Alliance; Oregon Jewish Museum; Oregon Israel Community Foundation; Portland Jewish Academy; Diane Solomon Family Fund; Wieden+Kennedy; and Ruben J. and Elizabeth Menashe. Full festival passes are available at nwfilm.org.

Festival passes are available for purchase for $85.

Global Lens is an annual touring exhibition organized by the Global Film Initiative (GFI) to encourage filmmaking in countries with developing film communities. The ten films in this year’s program—from the little-seen cinemas of such countries as Chile, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Kazakhstan, and Serbia—include projects developed with seed money from the GFI and offer a contemporary survey of fascinating filmmaking from areas where political, cultural, and economic challenges make independent feature filmmaking and distribution a formidable challenge. Accomplished, entertaining, and thought-provoking, these films are all deeply rooted in the social and political realities of the countries where their talented and resourceful makers live and set their stories.

The ongoing Northwest Tracking series focuses a spotlight on the work of independent filmmakers living across the Northwest—Alaska, British Columbia, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington—whose work reflects the vibrant cinematic culture of the region.
