CGIFF is open to all screenwriters. Our screenwriters have sold work and produced material via our programs. Our unique festival in the Pacific North West includes screenings, workshops, guest speakers and mentorship opportunities. We also offer camping on the grounds where our outdoor screenings, live music, comedians, performers and more takes place. We go on hikes, and enjoy the outdoors rafting, kayaking & so much more.
In our first seven years we have given away over $25,000 worth of cash and prizes. We also have honorary and in memoriam awards created by our extensive film maker community that has grown and been a part of the festival as it develops.
Columbia Gorge International Film Festival will take place from August 6-16, 2015 with screenings at a variety of venues with individual themes determined by the films accepted into the festival.
