Here Comes the Sun: Dramatic Shorts

puff logo no date


Underground films are borne out of love, not out of a desire for fame or to have an impact on popular culture. The Portland Underground Film Festival (PUFF) has, at its core, the mission to pay tribute to those films and videos that challenge commonly held attitudes toward technique, content, and form. Our intent is to honor those films that excel in pushing the boundaries of the cinematic arts to create a new audio-visual language.

Here Comes the Sun


Director Maria Servellon

A poetic journey of memory and fantasy told through the eyes of four versions of an artist as she creates her own identity.

Days of Awakening

Director Rodrigo Lopez-Portillo

David wakes up everyday looking for his girlfriend, Sam. Where has she gone? However, memories and a strange man in black will make him question his own whereabouts.

Man of Many

Director Gustavo J. Ramirez

There is always something that changes a man, whether he believes it or not. 

In Pieces

Director Monty Wolfe

Two young men, a neurotic and naive college student and a cool but caring rock musician, separately recount the story of the night they fell in love, wondering all the while if the other feels the same way. 

A twist on the American sex comedy, the film combines bawdy humor, contemporary music, and an ensemble of side characters to explore the notion that a full story can't be understood until all the pieces are assembled.
