Portland Film Festival June 2022 Schedule

There are only fifteen attendee openings per group. Each focus group will last up to 120 minutes and give attendees a chance to watch films not yet distributed. In many cases, the films have not been screened publicly.

Attendees will be given a ballot to vote on each film. Come to one or go to all the focus groups and help put Portland’s stamp on what MovieMaker Magazine calls one of the 25 coolest film festivals in the world.

NOTE: You will be watching films submitted to screen at the Portland Film Festival. You will not be recorded like most focus groups. We will provide snacks and beverages. All you have to do is watch films and vote with a yes, maybe, or no. Thanks again for volunteering.
