Find Your Greatness - Selected for Portland
Our Find Your Greatness project is back in the spotlight as the international campaign that advanced the London Olympics celebrates its 10-year anniversary. The Nike campaign shone a spotlight on the female perspective and promoted new attitudes for new times, with a focus on playing for fun and playing for oneself, rather than winning a competition.
The campaign features two female leads who are not professional athletes, but rather women playing sports for fun and for themselves. There are no boys watching them, no competition to win - just the joy of playing. The focus is on how you play the game, and using character as fuel to measure greatness.
To celebrate this anniversary, the 2022 Portland Film Festival presented by Comcast will be featuring stories about athletes, among many other important and compelling stories.
My goal is to share a collection of diverse voices through our festival and bring more awareness to the importance of diversity in the film industry. This year we expanded our tracks even more to include films about advocacy and activism, mental health, sports and more. - Festival Director
Comcast subscribers with an X1 voice remote or Flex streaming device will have easy and free access to a collection of films during the festival by simply saying “Portland Film Festival” into their remote. The festival will take place from October 11 to November 27, 2022, and will feature movie marathons, panels with mental health professionals and criminal detectives, hundreds of independent film screenings, director’s chats, networking events, as well as educational workshops and panels. The festival will take place in person at Lloyd Center, as well as being accessible online at portlandfilm.org
The 2022 Portland Film Festival will feature stories by and about women, the Asian community, the Black community, the Indigenous community, the Latin community, the LGBQTIA+ community, the Muslim community, people with disabilities, veterans, and athletes, among many other important and compelling stories.
