The Portland Circuit - A Local Film Distribution Project
The OregonMade Creative Foundation has teamed up with four of the best independent cinemas located in all four of the quadrants of Portland--Northwest Film Center, The Hollywood Theatre, Clinton Street Theater and Cinema 21, to announce a pilot program designed to give locally produced feature length films a short theatrical distribution window in the city. Screenings will consist of a four day run, with one night at each theatre, in the four “quadrants” of Portland.
