Sigh. Jonathan scooped me again.

A free film festival at the Bagdad Theater from 2-4pm on October 28th will feature the work of New York filmmaker and transportation activist Clarence Eckerson, focusing on Portland:

Come out for a series of locally made short films and live historical presentations highlighting how our community has created Portland’s world-class transportation system that serves families, seniors, walkers, bicyclists and businesses.

  1. Thanks for promoting this, Chris. If others are interested in submitting short films that celebrate transportation in Portland, please let me know. We almost have a full program, but I am looking for additional material for the event. Topics that would be particularly interesting to get submissions on are pedestrians, car sharing, light rail, and freight movement.

    They should tell a story, be family-friendly and entertaining, and be no longer than 7 minutes.

  2. Greg,
    do you have some of the Zig Zag pieces from Metro? Great material with fun stories from real people about getting around.
