Portland | City of Hope
The recent South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas, premiered a trio of Portland-set films: Aaron Katz’s mystery Cold Weather, Matt McCormick’s Some Days Are Better Than Others, and Christoph Baaden and Marcie Hume’s documentary Hood to Coast. These films, like those from many Portland directors (James Westby, Warren Pereira, Andy Blubaugh, etc), were made with a lot of talent and almost no money. Much of this talent is nurtured by local organizations like the Northwest Film and Video Festival and the Northwest Film Center.
