Zeitgeist Northwest will present the 6th Annual Portland German Film Festival in October/ November of 2015 – at  Cinema 21. Please check this website often for our monthly screenings at the Clinton Street Theater and other upcoming movie events! We are showing German or German language films the whole year round!

Our annual festival showcases feature films, documentaries and short films that represent the state-of-the-art in German film making. This year we have added 2 Austrian movies to give our audience the chance to experience the diversity, history and progress of German-speaking countries in Europe and next year we will be adding movies from Switzerland. All films are shown in German with English subtitles to allow a broad audience access to these German-language movies.

Film is a dynamic medium with the power to educate, inspire, intrigue and bring people together. Now in its 5th year, the Portland German Film Festival continues to offer thought-provoking and entertaining GERMAN cinema to the U.S. Spanning first-releases, dynamic documentaries, up-and-coming new artists to wonderful children’s fare, and classic films. The festival offers something for everyone.

The Portland German Film Festival is a curated festival and we do not have open submissions.
