HDFEST returns to Portland May 15th-17th for three nights of screenings of independent films at the Living Room Theaters from 5pm-11pm. The film festival will showcase over 40 projects in HD resolution including feature films, documentaries, shorts, music videos and animations. Screening sequences include “HD International Short Films,” “Romantic Relationships and Intrigue” and “High- Definition Gay Films." Indie filmmakers will be in town to discuss their work in Q&A sessions after the screenings.
