Vanport Film Project 


The NPMTC 2014 Vanport Film Project invites community members to participate in telling, producing, collecting, and viewing Vanport survivor oral histories.  Videos will be collected to present at three venues citywide with post viewing opportunities to meet producers and interviewees. Planning and implementation for the project in 2014 is under the direction of Laura LoForti, an experienced producer and "story mid-wife" who excels in the oral history genre. At least four workshops will be offered to the community to gather Vanport survivor stories and to document them through film or other media as an historic archive to the lost city of Vanport and to those who lived there. Stay tuned as we will be updating information on the project and training dates and schedules soon.
