A former fire-boat-station, the Boathouse is a long-running collective artist studio headed by Portland filmmaker Matt McCormick, who along with studio-mate Chris Freeman, will be hosting screenings aimed at bolstering Portland’s independent film community. Screenings will be cozy and informal, with ample time for snacks, drinks, questions and conversation.  The BoatHouse MicroCinema is supported in part by The Precipice Fund, Calligram Foundation, and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Special thanks is also due to PICA.
