Portland Community College’s 21st Cascade Festival of African Films, organized by dedicated volunteers, is bringing an acclaimed director to Portland Community College in the month of February.
The festival honors Black History Month and is held Thursdays through Saturdays from Feb. 4 through March 5. It will open with the visit of Mahamat-Saleh Haroun, who will show his latest award-winning film, “A Screaming Man,” at the Hollywood Theatre on Friday, Feb. 4.
Every year, the Cascade Festival of African Films attracts more and more visitors to its nearly two-dozen film showings. Last year, a record 5,500 people attended the festival and, since its inception in 1991, more than 54,000 film enthusiasts have attended films. The festival is offered to the public free of charge and at convenient locations that include: PCC’s Cascade Campus (705 N. Killingsworth St.), The Hollywood Theatre (4122 N.E. Sandy Blvd.) and McMenamins Kennedy School (5736 N.E. 33rd Ave.).
