RECAP: Year One from the Boathouse Microcinema, at the Portland Film Festival

*please note: this show is NOT at the Boathouse!*

We are pleased to present RECAP: Year One from the Boathouse Microcinema, a mini-retrospective presented by the Portland Film Festival at the Laurelhurst Theater.  As we near the end of our first year, the BHMC has presented 26 programs and featured the work of 94 local artists.  As the name suggests, RECAP looks back at these programs, featuring short films that display the stylistic diversity of the work that’s been presented.

For those not in the know, The Boathouse Microcinema is a non-traditional 30-seat screening venue dedicated to promoting the Portland filmmaking community. A former fire-boat-station, the Boathouse is a long-running collective artist studio that has deep roots in Portland’s creative scene. Headed by filmmaker Matt McCormick, founder of Peripheral Produce and the PDX Film Festival, and video artist Chris Freeman, The Boathouse Microcinema hosts weekly screenings of local experimental, independent, and fiercely DIY cinematic offerings. RECAP compiles a collection of films featured at the BHMC during its first year of operation:

Origin of the True Cinema, Zak Margolis
Dead Mall, Dustin Morrow
Piece in the Valley, Donal Mosher and Michael Palmieri
Impressions of Portland, Julie Perini
Un sueño despierto / A Daydream, Blanca Villalobos
EPISODE III — Leah Brown in collaboration with Julia Calabrese + Jin Camou
Vestibular Matching Soundtrack, McKenzie Blake
To See More Light, Kurtis Hough

9:30 at the Laurelhurst Theater
2735 E Burnside St, Portland, OR 97214
There will not be a show at the Boathouse this week!
