This week is the opening of The Columbia Gorge International Film Festival, from August 1st through August 17th. Screenings will occur in Vancouver WA, Camas WA, and Portland OR. Read more below on why The Columbia Gorge is such an amazing place for this International Film Festival.

“It is such a beautiful environment up here”, says Breven Warren, CGIFF Founder/Executive Director. “We consider the fest an exchange, of sorts. One where fantastic filmmakers can share their work with our audiences, and in return our audiences essentially share the sights and gifts of their gorgeous backyard.”
We LOVE that! Some of the activities are rafting in White Salmon, hiking at Eagle Creek and paddle boarding in Hood River. The activities are open to everyone after advance registration and a donation.
