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.
Shot entirely on location in Portland and starring Brownstein and SNL’s Fred Armisen, the series guest stars celebrities such as Kyle MacLachlan, Selma Blair and Gus Van Sant and is executive produced by Lorne Michaels and directed by Jonathan Krisel. The event will include an auction featuring items created by local artists inspired by Portlandia’s “Put a Bird on It” sketch and Rogue Brewery’s special Portlandia beer will be for sale.
