While Kicking + Screening London rolls, take a look back at K+S Portland

By Brian Costello

The last time around we faced Seattle, the Portland Timbers helped host a unique event known as the Kicking + Screening Film Festival. Set to the theme of rivalry, K+S Portland had films exploring the USA-Mexico rivalry, the long battles between Boca Juniors and River Plate in Buenos Aires, panels with directors, producers and our own Mike Fucito--who has been on both sides of the Portland-Seattle divide--and much more.

K+S London is in full swing now but take a look back at the Portland edition via the ubiquitous Jimmy Conrad.

Missed this one? Never fear. Rumors abound that K+S will return in 2013. Moreover, you can have your own mini K+S Festival courtesy of KICKTV as they stream online the full versions of The Ref (El Árbitro)about the daily life of a soccer refereem and FC Barcelona Confidentiala film with unprecedented look into the first season of president Joan Laporta's reign as president at the Spanish giant.
