The 38th Portland International Film Festival, sponsored by the Northwest Film Center, opens today, Thursday Feb. 5. 

The very first film screening will be Argentinean director Damián Szifrón’s Oscar-nominated film “Wild Tales” ("Relatos Salvajes"), a anthology of six individual short stories united by their black comedy and their shared themes of frustration, revenge, and the inability to escape the past.

A veteran TV and film director in Argentina, "Wild Tales" is Szifrón’s biggest hit so far, having made Argentinian history as the country's most popular domestic film in existence and selling 3.3 million tickets according to Hollywood Reporter. The film is currently nominated for an Acadamy Award for Best Foreign Film.

Immediately following the screening, the Northwest Film Center and the Oregonian are hosting an opening night party following the screening of “Wild Tales”. Co-hosts of this event include King Estate Winery, Pearl Catering, Sierra Nevada Brewing, and Swank & Swine.

The Portland International Film Festival will be screening 97 feature films and 60 shorts from around the world. The festival will run for approximately two weeks, ending on February 21st. A schedule of the films being shown can be found HERE.
