Join us for the premiere of American Winter - January 30, 2013

Please join us on February 17 for the premiere of American Winter.

 

Working with local non-profit 211Info, filmmakers Joe and Harry Gantz document the struggles of eight Portland families.

 

It is an honest, groundbreaking film - and reminds us why it is so important to fund our safety net services.

Portland Art Museum Whitsell Auditorium

1219 SW Park Avenue

Immediately following the premiere, the filmmakers will host a benefit reception for 211Info.

 

While there is no cost to attend the reception, we encourage you to sign up as a "partner" of 211, and donate what you can to help their mission. 211 will also accept donations at the reception.

Special thanks to the Gantz brothers for making this important film, and to 211Info for their great work.
