It is you, the audience, who selects the winner!

Enduring Favourite Favourites: Best of the Experimental Film Festival Portland
Curated and introduced by EFF Portland Co-Director Hannah Piper Burns
All of the films we screened each year were wonderful (or horrifying) in their own ways. In making this list I tried to show a range of forms, from dance film to documentary and portrait of place to glitch art, as well as create a tempo in viewing that can connect the pieces across their disparate origins. - Hannah Piper Burns

As a working theatre artist, you are essentially your own small business! Being self-employed brings many challenges.  This introductory workshop offers an opportunity for artists to have their questions answered in relation to self-promotion, membership in EQUITY/ACTRA, dealing with taxes and accessing resources.

Jan Skene has been working as a professional actor and business manager in film and theatre for over 28 years.
