Previewing The Portland International Film Festival

Pete Springer/OPB

Thursday marks the first day of the 36th Portland International Film Festival. Opening night features the Spanish silent film Blancanieves, an interpretation of the “Snow White” fairytale. The Festival also features the premiere of much-anticipated local film Alien Boy — a film about James Chasse, a young man with schizophrenia who was beaten by Portland Police and died in law enforcement custody. And, of course, there is a plethora (pdf) of foreign films to check out.

We’ll get recommendations on what films will be the best bets at PIFF.
