Hot off the presses: PIFF schedules are out!

I stopped by the offices of the Northwest Film Center School of Film yesterday and--lo & behold--was rewarded for my drive with a copy of this year's schedule for the Portland International Film Festival.  Lots of opportunities to see films (88 features and 42 shorts, by my count) from around the globe in February.

I'm pretty excited about the inclusion of this Chilean film by director Patricio Guzmán (The Battle of Chile):

as well as When We Leave, the debut feature from Turkish German director Feo Aladag, starring Sibel Kekilli (of Fatih Akin's Head-On):

I'll keep an eye out and post an update when the online schedule goes live.  If waiting isn't your game, you've got a pretty good chance of scoring a copy of the printed version over at the Whitsell Auditorium, Portland Art Museum or NW Film Center offices.

And as I mentioned in an earlier post, I'll be checking out the first of the press screenings for this year's festival this Monday.  First up, Kawasaki's Rose from the Czech Republic:

and Silent Souls from Russia:

Until then...
