What Is The Oregon Short Film Festival?

The Oregon Short Film Festival is a diverse and fun independent theatrical screening event in Portland, Oregon. This event screens a fun mix of international and domestic short films of all genres at the 5th Avenue Cinema. Mikel and Brooke Fair started this festival in 2016, because of the enthusiastic support for independent film in the state of Oregon. The fourth annual screening will take place on February 22-24, 2019.  Please check out the Oregon Short Film Festival 2019 Event Page for more information about the schedule, tickets, trailers and social media posts about our upcoming event.
