1st Annual Action Hero Fan FIlm Showcase 


Academy Theater Portland OR


Hero's R Us

Year one of the Rose City HERO 2016 (HERO16) will prove to be an exciting festival, showcasing the best in independent short films, with the focus aimed

directly at super hero cinema. We're looking for action/adventure films based on heroes, which should prove to be one of the most entertaining film showcases this year. We hope this 

showcase will introduce Fan Films to a 

new audience and create a destination for this creative genre.



Indie FIlmmakers Rejoice

There clearly is a trend for this specific genre, as Hollywood will put out films surrounding super heroes and comic book movies will rule the box office. We feel it's just as important to celebrate the independent filmmaker, and that is the 

mission of the HERO16  

to give a voice to the vision of indie films

creating a space where creatives can share and showcase their work in the coolest 

city in the NW.
