Film Independent Spirit Awards Watch Party

We cordially invite you to Portland Film Festival’s annual Film Independent #SpiritAwards viewing party at Romtoms.

Please join us at 2pm on Saturday, February 27, to celebrate the achievements of indie filmmakers, connect with other members of the Portland filmmaking community, and enjoy (a limited, though generous, array of) complimentary food. Indie film bingo will be in full effect with prizes including swag giveaways (some better, some worse), free drinks, and even a festival pass or two!

Please RSVP for this FREE event so we know how many to expect. We look forward to seeing you at Portland’s only celebration of the “Indie Oscars”!

Also check out our Facebook invite, located here.

The Portland Film Festival established itself as one of Portland’s first indie film non-profits, founded in 2013 with Portland’s first movie meetup, the Portland Film Club. Its hundreds of screenings, events, education programs, and community partnerships provide a remarkable experience for our diverse audience to connect with filmmakers working across genres and forms.
