The Northwest Film Center is hosting its 43rd Portland International Film Festival March 6-15, 2020. This year, PIFF will include films, talks, workshops, visiting artists, and parties! While heading to individual screenings is always an excellent option, PIFF passes are a great way to experience all that the festival offers.

Three-film Opening Night program features The Climb, as well as shorts America and The Giverny Document (Single Channel). One ticket includes all screenings, which will happen back-to-back at both venues. Attendees are welcome to come to one, or stay for all three! Followed by our Opening Night party in the Portland Art Museum’s Fred & Suzanne Fields Ballroom.
