Portland German Film Festival

In our Monthly Film Series, we will show a variety of GERMAN or GERMAN language films from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. On the 2nd Wednesday of each month, audiences will now have a chance to see these films on a regular basis at the CLINTON STREET THEATER. (Children movies will be playing on Sunday afternoons – please check our website.) All films are with English subtitles.

Our film in November will mark our 1 year anniversary of this monthly series!

To celebrate this event, we will have door prizes and lots of movie and music swag (not related to CERRO TORE) while supplies last.

Here is our upcoming schedule:
