Social Media & Press
If you’ve noticed an increase in our social media presence it is because we brought on an intern, Brit to amp it up. Please message [email protected] if you have specific posts you would like shared or posted for your brand. Also, as you create your own for the week, please tag @Portland Women’s Film Festival or #powfest14 in your own Facebook posts, @POWFest for Twitter and @powfest for Instagram. You can also find us on Pinterest! Re-purpose and share what we already have going or build your own off of this social media promo page.
Please check for Press of the festival; the festival open will be placed here, as well.
