PDXtreme - Portland Underground Film Fest

December 4 - 6, 2015

What is PDXtreme? It’s a celebration of genre film. We want to show horror, crime, dark comedy and even applicable documentaries. Tales of the grotesque, the limits of the psychological, and bumps in the night whatever the cause! Does it take place in space? That’s cool too.
When it comes to blood or nudity and you’re worried other fests can’t handle it, you’re in the right place. The only limits are the law. Originality and diversity are not only encouraged, but celebrated. Submit today!
