The Goals
The goal of POWFest is to shift the world of women in film, one film at a time. We are dedicated to promoting and creating professional development and networking opportunities for women filmmakers of every level. Beyond filmmaker participation we are also dedicated to bringing to Portland, programming that is thought-provoking and will engage the audience well beyond the theater. POWFest has the opportunity to connect films to local and national organizations that are dedicated to that particular film's subject matter, enhancing the audience's experience of the film and contributing to community building and social activism.

POWFest has had the honor of hosting a variety of emerging filmmakers as well as such accomplished Directors as Allison Anders, Irene Taylor-Brodsky, Kathryn Bigelow, Gillian Armstrong, Amy Heckerling, Barbara Kopple and Penelope Spheeris. The 4-day festival, scheduled for March 6-9, 2014 will feature over 50 films, offering attendees a variety of narrative and documentary programming from a women's perspective. The experience is enhanced by filmmaker participation in post-screening Q&As & panels.

POWFest is produced by Sour Apple Productions in partnership with The Hollywood Theatre.
