WILLCO is excited to announce that we will be partnering with Portland Community College to sponsor the 26th Annual Cascade Festival of African Films next month! The festivities begin Friday, February 5th and run through Saturday, March 5th, coinciding with PCC’s celebration of Black History Month.
This festival began as a means of encouraging understanding of the diversity of African people and their cultures and it has grown into the longest running annual, non-profit, non-commercial, largely volunteer-run African Film Festival in the United States.
The Cascade Festival of African Films offers fifteen films that are primarily produced by African directors, and offer “pictures of Africa through the eyes of Africans rather than a version of Africa that is primarily packaged for western viewers”.
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!
