WILLCO is excited to announce that once again we will be sponsoring the 27th Annual Cascade Festival of African Films! The CFAF is the longest running annual, non-profit, non-commercial, primarily volunteer run African Film Festival in the United States.
This festival began as a means of encouraging understanding of the diversity of African people and their cultures. Each film is chosen largely on the basis of its quality and ability to captivate audiences. They are selected to represent diverse cultures and lifestyles, in a range of urban and rural settings throughout different countries. The majority of the selected films were made with African directors and show viewers ‘Africa through the eyes of Africans.’
The festivities begin Friday, February 3rd and run through Saturday, March 4th and coincide with PCC’s celebration of Black History Month. To view a full line up of films, show times, and screening locations for each day of the festival, please click here. WILLCO is proud to be a yearly sponsor for this event and to partner with Portland Community College to bring this event to the community. All events are free and open to the public on a first come first served basis so drop by and enjoy these exciting films!
