Our annual festival showcases feature films, documentaries and short films that represent the state-of-the-art in German film making. We are also delighted to include films from Austria and Switzerland to give our audience the chance to experience the diversity, history and progress of German-speaking countries in Europe. 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 7th year, the Portland German Film Festival continues to offer thought-provoking and entertaining German language 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.
We are also expanding this year, highlights of the festival to Seattle, KINOFEST Seattle 2016 from Oct. 7 – 9, 2016 at the Northwest Film Forum.
