WIFF is excited to be once again partnering with Rose City Politics as the sponsor of the event.

“Rose City Politics is proud to support a cultural institution in our hometown,” says Doug Sartori of RSP. “Besides being an incredible event for audiences and participants alike, FlickFest is something our late friend and associate Mark Boscariol cared deeply about.”

“Our friend Mark Boscariol founded WIFF. He had a particular passion for the inventiveness, fun and controlled chaos of having teams make a short film in only 48 hours,” says Vincent Georgie, Executive Director and Chief Programmer of WIFF.” I think he would be amazed to know that this tradition carries on, and has grown to include enthusiastic participants from all over North America.”
