Aaron Katz's "Cold Weather." IFC Films
FESTIVAL FUN: The 34th Portland International Film Festival (PIFF) have announced the visiting artists in attendance at this year's Festival (it takes place from Feb. 10-26) and I have to tell you I am STOKED.
With at least a half-dozen films that were either shot or based in Oregon, and a boatload of foreign features and shorts, this year's fest looks to be a true winner, as well as a great place to chat up the makers of these incredible films.
