    I love film and I’ve never been to Mt. hood!

    I’m trying to learn more about film making and it would be amazing to see non corporate movies.

    I love watching obscure movies. Movies that do not always have a 20 million dollar budget . That is when you truly get to see the love and art that gets put into a movie. Plus I have never been to Mt. Hood so that would be a bonus!

    I would be grateful to win because my husband kicked me out of Paris and now the only thing that brings me any joy is watching good films. At least if I watch them at a festival, I won’t get bed sores.

    I’d love to take my girlfriend to this, because she’s a huge festival kinda gal. Not to mention that I got myself in a little pickle with her and this would be an excellent make-up gesture to make amends… Please Please Please… Pick me:-)

    My fiance and I just moved to Portland from TEXAS. We sold everything and drove trying to find a better life and a place that was exactly the opposite of Dallas. Portland has surpassed our expectations and we are in love with the city. However, as we are still looking for work and leaving of our small savings, we are limited to what we can do around. We would also to love to attend this event to make friends since we don’t know anyone here yet. We also both love film, but we don’t own a tv yet.

  24. Brett S. October 13, 2012 at 7:36 pm #

    I would like to go because I am an aspiring filmmaker and love any opportunity to view others’ works and increase my knowledge of the visual art that is film.

  25. Holly Abney October 13, 2012 at 9:38 pm #

    Me and the husband just moved here from Missouri. We live independent films and never had a chance to see then except from our tv… Would live to go!
