In its ongoing effort to provide opportunities to members to interact with and grow the local film industry, the SAG-AFTRA Portland Local is proud to sponsor the 2016 Portland Film Festival, running August 29 through September 5.

Portland isn’t just the city of roses — for the eight days of the festival, it will be the city of film. The festival includes networking, workshops, guest speakers, financing talks, jam-packed film premieres, director Q&As and more. There's a reason Portland is different. Come be a part of what MovieMaker Magazine called, "one of the coolest film festivals in the world."

SAG-AFTRA will be presenting two events during the Festival:

Independent Film and New Media Agreements Workshop

When: 4 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 1

Where: The Laurelhurst Theater
2735 East Burnside St. 
Portland, OR 97214

Actors Networking Event at The Cardinal Club Lounge

When: 6 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 1

Where: The Cardinal Club Lounge
18 NE 28th Ave,
Portland, OR 97232

As a special benefit to SAG-AFTRA members, the festival is offering a $10 off discount for the “Industry Pass,” entitling the purchaser to access (capacity permitting) to any actor's workshop, class, screenwriting panel and networking event at the festival, including the closing night event and film (does not include regular screenings), as well as 20% off All-Access and VIP Festival Passes.
