Hollywood Theatre at PDX International Airport

In partnership with the Port of Portland, the Hollywood Theatre has opened a first-of-its-kind free 17-seat microcinema at Portland International Airport, showcasing short films by Oregon filmmakers. The airport microcinema is located after security in the airport's C Concourse.

Are you a filmmaker interested in having your work shown? To be considered, films must be 10 minutes or shorter in length and appropriate for a general audience. Films must be created by an Oregon artist or feature issues relating to Oregon or the Pacific Northwest. Learn more!
