If you were at this Peripheral Produce event in Portland, Oregon in 1997 then not only did you see Jim Fetterley and Rich Bott before they were Animal Charm, Julian Lawrence scratch away a film WHILE IT WAS BEING PROJECTED (with a live soundtrack performed by Noggin), and the great film Andre The Giant has a Posse, but you also saw MIRANDA JULY’S FIRST EVER VIDEO-INTEGRATED PERFORMANCE! All for the wonderful cause of helping with the restoration efforts of the lovely Hollywood Theatre!
2005 was a great year for PDX. We were so lucky to have Garrett Scott on hand for the premiere of his powerful film Operation: Dreamland, as well as Miranda July (making the west-coast premiere of Me and You and Everyone we Know), Deborah Stratman, David Gatten, and many more. That year, Vladimir won her 2nd straight the Peripheral Produce Invitational, but Eric Ostrowski was hot on her tail with his Sidewalk-ography film he made on the sidewalk in front of the theater in the days leading up to the event.
