Lodging & Transportation
Lodging Options for the Cine-Lit VII International Conference:
Cine-Lit VII has made exclusive arrangements for its participants at the Hotel Modera in downtown Portland. Those of you who have attended previous Cine-Lit Conferences might remember The Portland Inn and/or The Days Inn. That building has been extensively renovated and renamed the Hotel Modera. It is a very short walk to both the Smith Center on the Portland State University campus where most of Cine-Lit’s sessions will be held, and to the theaters that will screen the Portland International Film Festival’s movies. We are delighted to have the Hotel Modera as our center of operations.
The Hotel Modera has reserved a block of rooms for Cine-Lit VII participants. However, all participants must make their own reservations and must do so at least one month before the conference in order to receive the conference rate: $99 + tax. This is an excellent price and we encourage you to take advantage of it. There are also some rooms with two beds for anyone wishing to economize.
You can contact the Modera and make your reservations by accessing the hotel’s web page:

Other Hotel rooms and rates are available for reservation until January 15. After January 15th, rooms and rates are subject to availability.
