The festivity begins at the Hollywood Theatre at 7:30pm, with emcee Mikey Kampmann and comic Ian Karmel, followed by two episodes of PORTLANDIA’s “dreamy and absurd rendering of Portland, Oregon” a week before it premieres on IFC. The screening will be followed by a Q&A between film critic Aaron Mesh and co-creator and co-star Carrie Brownstein.
