The PINE Film Festival, where PINE stands for Portland International Nature and Environmental, is a celebration of:
? film and the independent filmmaker - a unique, provocative medium and the creative genius that brings it to life;
? storytelling - the ancient art that engages us, entertains us, and perhaps most important of all, provides understanding where none may have existed before; and
? interconnection - our relationship to each other, to the other organisms with whom we share this planet and among those organisms.
What is an "environmental" film? We interpret the term "environmental" broadly. likening it to interconnectedness. Thus, to us, an environmental film is one that reminds us of or explores our relationship to each another and the world around us.
The PINE Film Festival is a project of the nonprofit organization Livable Place.
