Portland Community College’s Cascade Campus is getting ready for Black History Month and the 28th annual Cascade Festival of African Films. The films are made by Africans for Africans rather than for Western viewers.
The free films will show Feb. 3 through March 4 on Thursdays through Sundays. Some are scheduled at the Hollywood Theatre, 4122 N.E. Sandy Blvd., and others at the Moriarty Arts and Humanities Building at the campus on 705 N. Killingsworth St.
The schedule includes shorts, documentaries and work by women and men directors. Some directors, actors and musicians are scheduled to appear at showings. The festival website is at www.africanfilmfestival.org.
