Portland Film Festival


Filmmakers, it’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for. The Portland Film Festival is now accepting submissions for 2023. We are looking for good films with compelling stories. Do you have any suggestions? Please submit your narrative features, documentaries, shorts of all kinds, transmedia, web series, student films, TikToks, Reels, music videos, and more.

MovieMaker Magazine named our festival one of the “25 coolest film festivals in the world” and a “top 50 film festival worth the entry fee,” so get your submission in before time runs out. And we hope to see you in October online and in-person. Portland is a fantastic city—you’ll not want to miss what we’re planning for 2023.
