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.

Northwest Tracking highlights the work of independent filmmakers living and working in the Northwest—Alaska, British Columbia, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington—whose work reflects the vibrant cinematic culture of the region. Whether presenting single-artist retrospectives, new features, documentaries, or inspired collections of short works, this ongoing showcase offers testimony to the creativity and talent in our flourishing media arts community.

Coming up November 12-17 is the 42nd Northwest Filmmakers’ Festival, the Film Center’s
annual showcase of outstanding new work by regional makers.

As cinema moves into its second century, the preservation of classic films is finding new life through digital technology and collaborative efforts by film archives and studios worldwide. At the same time, appreciation for the glories of 35mm film prints and the opportunity for new generations to see the originals on the big screen remains a distinct pleasure. The Film Center is pleased to present this selection of iconic classics enjoying a second life via restoration or preservation, either by digital magic or lovingly made film prints. We hope you’ll discover something new, or see a longtime favorite in an entirely new light.

While cinema provides entertainment and escape, for many committed filmmakers and viewers it is a vital medium of engagement and a powerful tool for social action. Tackling wide-ranging, thought-provoking issues, activist filmmakers help deepen our awareness of injustice and the values of dignity and equality as they tell universal stories of struggle and triumph. We hope these informative and inspirational films will broaden understanding and stimulate involvement as they reveal the commitment, experience, and courage of hearts and minds focused on challenges that touch us all. Our thanks go to the Human Rights Watch Film Festival and other international events for showcasing of works of vitally engaged filmmakers. Thanks to KBOO FM for their promotional support.

As regular Northwest Film Center attendees know—from recent retrospectives of Swedish directors Roy Andersson and Reuben Östlund to the continuing Nordic treasures premiering in the Portland International Film Festival each year— Scandinavian film remains one of cinema’s great founts of creativity. While a few of the most exciting dramas, comedies, and thrillers from Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, and Iceland find scattered commercial distribution in the United States, most never make it to Portland screens. We hope this showcase of recent films offers partial remedy and discovery. Special thanks the Danish, Finnish, Icelandic, Norwegian, and Swedish Film Institutes for their assistance in organizing what we hope will be an annual celebration. Our thanks also go to the Scandinavian Heritage Foundation, Portland for their sponsorship of the series.

Our inaugural Friday Film Club discussion series—presented monthly when the Portland Art Museum’s galleries are open late on Friday evenings—features works with implicit or explicit focus on landscape: rural and urban, physical and emotional. Presented in conjunction with the Museum’s “Seeing Nature” exhibition, on view October 10-January 8, we hope these films will spark dialogue, both between audience members and between artistic mediums. The screenings are accompanied by post-film discussions led by a Museum docent, sometimes with a short exhibition tour component.
