pow film fest 2019

 

POW Film Fest is Portland’s premiere film festival showcasing films directed by women. Now in its 12th year, the festival features the work of some of today’s top women directors, while honoring the true pioneers and recognizing the next generation of leading women filmmakers. Over the years POW has striven to encourage thoughtful and engaged discourse of the female perspective while heralding the need for greater parity in the film industry through the keen discerning eyes of women and non-binary film and media makers. POW was created, in part, to celebrate women in their quest to thrive and grow in the film industry.

The fest also provides space to strengthen the Portland community of women in film by offering year-round film workshops for girls and non-binary youth ages 15 -19 with their POWGirls program.
