Fall heralds the return of the Portland Queer Film Festival, an annual showcase of short and feature-length narrative and documentary films from around the world. While varied in form and content, the selected films share a marked relevance to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community (not to mention plenty of film industry buzz).
The festival returns yearly to the historic Cinema 21 theater, a Northwest Portland landmark since 1925. Visit PQFF’s website to learn more about past lineups and to buy a festival pass or individual screening tickets in the future.
