POW Film Fest is Portland’s premiere film festival showcasing films made by women and non-binary filmmakers. The festival features the work of some of today’s top women and non-binary directors, while honoring the true pioneers and recognizing the next generation of leading filmmakers.
Over the years POW has striven to encourage thoughtful and engaged discourse of the female perspective while heralding the need for greater parity in the film industry through the keen discerning eyes of women and non-binary film and media makers. POW was created, in part, to celebrate these creatives in their quest to thrive and grow in the film industry.
