A scholarship fund has been
set up by Film Action Oregon
in honor of Austin Miller

Two years before his tragic death, Beaverton high school student Austin Miller attended a summer program to learn how to produce documentary films.

That program, Project Youth Doc, is run by Film Action Oregon. Now, in honor of Austin’s “inimitable spirit,” the organization has set up the Austin Miller Scholarship Fund.

On April 18th and 19th, Film Action Oregon will host a special showing of a rare, youth-created, shot-by-shot remake of the blockbuster Steven Spielberg pic Raiders of the Lost Ark. The remake, titled Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation, was produced by three 12 year-olds from Mississippi (learn more about the film here).

The Adaptation has been selling out theaters across the country. You can purchase tickets online and all proceeds go to the scholarship fund.

    Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation
    presented by Film Action Oregon
    April 18-19 (three screenings; details and tickets here)
    Hollwood Theater (4122 NE Sandy Blvd, Portland)

    Will this be a big street party like Filmed by Bike with the lighted hoola hoops and performers?

    Seeing that this is a bigger theatre, perhaps a bike parade inside just before the show?
