TwoOhSix Picks - 2017 Portland Film Festival

The 2017 Portland Film Festival, one of the "coolest film festivals in the world", is back with a slate of films, events, workshops, and parties that any film fan would fall in love with. After taking a look at this year's lineup, I've put together a selection of movies that have caught my attention and feature genres that I love to watch.

TwoOhSix Festival Picks

Women looking for fame on social media. Looks less annoying than Ingrid Goes West.

Director: Laura Swanson
Real survivors of human trafficking tell their story. This is important.

Crash Pad
Closing Night Narrative Film
Director: Kevin Tent
Great cast and lots of potential.

Darkest Hour
Special Pre-Release Screening
Director: Joe Wright
This could be an Oscar contender. Oh, and Gary Oldman.

Fake Blood
Directors: Rob Grant and Mike Kovac
Interesting documentary about the real world effects of violent movies.

Director: Sam Upton
Boxing movies about underdogs are usually crowd pleasers.

The Hollow Child
Director: Jeremy Lutter
Lots of festival awards and the trailer looks legit.

Secret Santa

A family holiday gathering gone horribly wrong.

The VelociPastor
Director: Brendan Steere
A pastor who can change into a velociraptor so he can fight ninjas.
This might just be the greatest movie ever made.
