  • THE WIND RISES "Shit. I knew I shouldn't have microwaved that plane."

At this point in the year, we've usually got a bit more info about the Portland International Film Festival—which, this year, runs from Thurs Feb 6-Sat Feb 22. But this news from Marc Mohan at the Oregonian is promising, at least: The Wind Rises, the latest (and final) film from Hayao Miyazaki, will be playing at the fest, along with new films from Ti West (House of the Devil, The Innkeepers) and Ari Folman (Waltz with Bashir).

Not much else has been announced about this year's PIFF, other than it will screen some films at OMSI's Empirical Theater. But stay tuned to the Mercury for more PIFF coverage as the fest gets closer and we find out more.

(Sadly, there is no word yet if The Monkey King will be playing. Fingers crossed, people.)
