Hollywood Theatre opens film submissions for first cycle of Hollywood Theatre @PDX programming
A collaboration between the Hollywood Theatre and the Port of Portland, the Hollywood Theatre @PDX will create a movie theatre space in the Portland International Airport’s C Concourse which will feature short films telling stories specific to Oregon, provide artist residency opportunities inviting collaboration between national/international media artists and local filmmakers, and host special events and visiting guests. Currently slated to open in summer 2016, the Hollywood Theatre @PDX will serve the Portland International Airport’s 16 million annual visitors, who can drop in free of charge to watch films while waiting for their flights.
Programming at the Hollywood Theatre @PDX will rotate quarterly, and submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis online via Film Freeway.
To be considered for inclusion, films must be 10 minutes in length or shorter, be appropriate for a general audience, feature original content and high production values, have been created by a local or regional artist or concern issues relating to Oregon or the Pacific Northwest, and not contain advertisements in any shape or form. (Additional terms and conclusions are available at the Hollywood Theatre @PDX’s Film Freeway page.)
For the project’s first programming cycle spanning late summer/early fall 2016, films must be submitted by April 30, 2016.
The Hollywood Theatre @PDX project is made possible through the partnership of the Port of Portland, ZGF Architects, Potestio Studio, and Security Signs, as well as the funding support of Travel Oregon, the Fred W. Fields Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation, the Oregon Arts Commission’s Arts Build Communities program, and the Calligram Foundation.
