The Oregon International Film Festival, formerly known as Oregon State International Film Festival, was founded by film enthusiasts teaching international cinemas at Oregon State University. A curated festival, OIFF presents award-winning films from across the globe, many of which premiere at Berlinale, Cannes, and Sundance. OIFF also regularly screens world premieres, US premieres, and west coast premieres.
2019 marks a new beginning, as the festival is no longer associated with Oregon State University. We will continue to work with our community partner, Darkside Cinema, and with new partners across the state of Oregon to bring exciting films to the Pacific Northwest.
For its 2018 iteration, Oregon State International Film Festival solicited submissions for documentary, narrative, animated, and experimental short films (up to 45 minutes), and for documentary, narrative or animated feature films (longer than 45 minutes) by woman-identified (women and trans women) filmmakers.
In order to be considered, submissions had to be by a woman or a filmmaker identifying as a woman AND:
a) be in a language other than English (with English subtitles), OR
b) be filmed in a country outside of the United States, OR
c) include an explanation regarding how the submitted film qualifies as "international."
