The 39th annual Portland International Film Festival opens tonight, Thursday, Feb 11, with screenings of Finnish film The Fencer (at Fox Tower and the Whitsell Auditorium) followed by a reception at the Portland Art Museum. Over 17 days, more than 140 movies—documentaries to dramas, family friendly fare to biting satire—will be gracing big screens around Portland. We’ve combed through the program and pulled together the 11 we’re most excited to see into this handy primer.
Portland International Film Festival (PIFF) runs from Feb 11—Feb 27.
