International Film Festival
will take place on April 6, 2024Submit Your Film
Portland Shorts is a place where films of all genres intersect. At the heart of the One-day festival is the quality and scope of an extraordinary film program, consisting of a wide range of categories from high-budget to low-budget films with a duration of less than 45 minutes.
Portland Shorts is a non-profit organization that showcases the best short films from filmmakers around the world. After the festival, we strive to organize film markets to attract sponsors and distributors for projects, creating opportunities for the career development of participants.
The Portland Shorts International Film Festival is the largest short film festival in the state of Oregon and a springboard for the careers of filmmakers.
We believe that short films and their creators should have their own premier film festival in Portland, deserving of the same recognition as feature films.

Yet something is off. Her hometown feels unfamiliar, there is an air about the town that feels unsafe, predatory. Throughout her stay she spirals into a deeply anxious state feeling as though she’s being taunted by a faceless figure of a man or multiple men.
Dreamy and haunting soundscapes by Grammy-nominated producer Shepard, bring to life the fear and helplessness of "Out There" lead Claire, portrayed by Jessica Sula (Split, Godless, Malum), as she sticks out a nightmarish week at her mother's home.
