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.
