The 28th annual Reel Music Festival, slated for Jan. 7-20, 2011, explores the lively interplay between sound and image, music and culture.
Presented by Portland's Northwest Film Center, it celebrates the unexpected stories behind some of the world's greatest music, with films spotlighting the origins of songs that people sing every day.
Clients attending the festival can see collections of vintage performance clips, new documentary and dramatic films, and cutting-edge music videos and animation. Reel Music embraces films exploring a variety of musical genres -- jazz, blues, rock, classical, opera and avant-garde -- and fuses them into a unique cinematic celebration.
