After months of jurying over 400 films from female filmmakers from around the world, the Portland Oregon Women’s Film Festival (a.k.a. POW Fest) is pleased to announce the programming highlights planned for its fourth annual festival scheduled to take place March 9 – 13, 2011. “I am always thrilled after the POWFest schedule comes together to see the amazing talent of women filmmakers. We strive to showcase not only women who have been working for many years, the true pioneers in women-created cinema, but also those who are just getting their start. Every year our festival grows, building on the year past, and truly creating a collective hub of women,” shared Tara L. Johnson Medinger, POWFest Executive Director.
