Year 5 is upon us!
Our goal is to curate a gallery of film for the underground, under-known, rough and raw filmmaker. Low Budget, analog format, top priority. The Portland Unknown Film Festival is here to showcase films from the deepest depths of the filmmaking universe and encourage the future of cinema.
Your goal is to bring us into worlds we've never seen before. Take us on a lucid dream through your mind. Teach us something new. Show us the light. Make us go, "Huh?".
In 2020, the Portland Unknown Film Festival will continue to shake the foundation of contemporary filmmaking by uprooting the norms and defying convention. The festival will consist of multiple film sessions including a rowdy micro-short "Fingertips Festival" comprised of films 5 minutes or less and an international music video party.
Submit today. Unveil your experiments and alternate realities to us!
The Portland Unknown does not invite films. We watch every submission. All films are selected very carefully from only the current year's batch of entries.
