The Portland German Film Festival, in collaboration with Northwest Film Forum, will present the 2nd annual KINOFEST Seattle, November 17 – 19, 2017 at the Northwest Film Forum, 1515 12th Ave. in Seattle.

After our very successful start with KINOFEST Seattle 2016, we will return with our 2nd annual KINOFEST Seattle 2017, which will include the newest in German-language cinema with features, docs and shorts from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. All films will be in German with English subtitles. 

Much of KINOFEST Seattle will be culled from the Portland German Film Festival, though the Seattle fest will also include some of its own unique programming.

Now in its 8th year, the Portland German Film Festival is an annual showcase of German-language cinema in Portland, Oregon. Over the last year, the festival has featured several world and US premieres as well as played host to internationally renowned artists like Katja Riemann, Maria Schrader, Xavier Koller and others. This year’s festival takes place September/ October 2017 at Cinema 21, 616 NW 21st Ave, Portland.

Northwest Film Forum is Seattle’s premier film arts organization, screening hundreds of independently made and classic film annually, offering a year-round schedule of filmmaking classes for all ages, and supporting filmmakers at all stages of their careers.
