What our organization offers: 
Ages for which our activities are most appropriate: 
Established in 1971, the Northwest Film Center (NWFC) is a Portland, OR-based year-round organization and space where artists and audiences explore our region and the world through cinema and cinematic storytelling in all its forms. Our mission is to expand the reach of cinema as an art form and challenge for whom, by whom and how stories can be told. Through our festivals, screenings, events, guest speaker programs, as well as adult and youth classes and workshops, audiences and artists form connections that bind our community and encourage a more vibrant, accessible, and diverse media-arts ecosystem.


The Northwest Film Center’s education programs provide learning opportunities to working filmmakers, aspiring video storytellers, creatives and youth 4th-12th grade through classes, workshops, studios, and camps. The Film Center’s programming in filmmaking, video production, animation, and screenwriting and more serves makers who wish to develop their personal vision as a film artist, offering classes and workshops that emphasize media aesthetics in a hands-on context. Film Center faculty are working artists who devote a portion of their professional lives to teaching.
