Celebrate with Us: The Oregon Swallowtail Takes Flight at the Portland Film Festival, presented by Comcast October 16-20, 2024

This year, from October 16-20, 2024, the Portland Film Festival, presented by Comcast, is proud to celebrate the beauty and transformation symbolized by the Oregon Swallowtail. With its vibrant yellow and black wings, this local butterfly reflects the spirit of our city and the art of cinema—constantly evolving and captivating.

Just like the Oregon Swallowtail transforms from a caterpillar into a stunning butterfly, the films we showcase go through their own journey—from initial concepts to the final, polished presentations on the big screen. Each stage of this process is crucial, like the butterfly’s metamorphosis, allowing stories to unfold and reach audiences.

As you enjoy our selection of pre-release film screenings, let the Oregon Swallowtail inspire us. It’s not just the mascot of the 2024 season; it’s truly a symbol of the creativity, resilience, and transformation that define the very art of filmmaking.

Join us at the Portland Film Festival presented by Comcast from October 16-20, 2024, where we celebrate the journey of storytelling, the talent of filmmakers, the beauty of change, and the magnificent Oregon Swallowtail.
