Leadership and Staff

    The Portland Film Festival is a volunteer driven organization. Our story is made possible by a host of people including those taking tickets at doors for screenings, watching and evaluating submitted films, communicating with our filmmakers, facilitating parties and workshops, posting on social media, driving VIP guests to events, and acquiring sponsorships. The Portland Film Festival directors help bring it all together and there is plenty of space for you to join us!
