The Film Show features news and interviews about the independent film scene in Portland

The Film Show is KBOO's lens on the local and independent film scene, airing the Fourth Thursday of each month from 11:30am to noon.

The Film Show appreciates the ongoing support and collaboration of the local production community, most notably the Oregon Media Production Association.
