Fresh Film Northwest is a juried survey of work by up-and-coming teen filmmakers living in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Alaska, and British Columbia. Now in its 42nd year, the Festival recognizes individual talent, showcases model examples of how film arts can be taught in schools, and engages all of us in helping to build the Northwest regional youth media community of 13- to 19-year-olds. Congratulations to these young filmmakers, whose work has been selected from nearly 130 entries, and to the high schools, community organizations, and mentors who supported their efforts. May this glimpse into the heart and spirit of the next generation be a refreshing reminder that film making is first and foremost about people encouraging each other and showing the way. This is a FREE event on Saturday, Nov. 3 at the Portland Art Museum's Whitsell Auditorium: 1219 SW. Park Ave. in Portland. Visit nwfilm.org.
