    I ran into people from all corners of the Portland film industry at the Portland Indie Film and Networking Event. The Paris Theatre was a fun and laidback venue to meet other filmmakers and enjoy the works this city has produced. I had the opportunity to screen my film, "Linea," at the event his past winter, but will definitely be attending events in the future, to catch more great films and people.
