 In Blog, General Updates, Screenings

Homegrown Poster Fall 2011Local cinema starts here: Homegrown DocFest. Join your friends and neighbors as they premiere short documentary films they have made on Friday, December 16th at the Mission Theater.

The new films, freshly-made in this fall’s NW Documentary workshops, present stories as fascinating and diverse as our community. The stories include a daughter’s reflection on her father’s past as a closted gay man in a small town in the 50s and 60s; & the story of a woman that runs a yoga studio & was recently diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. We’ll follow an unemployed man as he attempts to make a hobo nickel and trade it for a cup of coffee; & local indie-folk-gypsy band Bad Mitten Orchestra as they prepare to release a new album.

Some are funny, some heart-wrenching, and all an earnest effort to bring new, untold Portland stories to the big screen.

Enjoy conversation with the filmmakers as well as live Northwest Mountain Music from Jackstraw.

Doors open @ 7 & the show starts @ 8.

Admission is $10. All proceeds benefit NW Documentary’s educational programming.

Food & beer available for purchase – 21+ only.

Tickets are available via the Mission Theater.

See you then!
