Save the dates! Our 30th Festival kicks off on January 31 2020!

in celebration of Black History MonthA free popular Portland event for 29 years, this year’s film festival features five weeks of more than 30 feature, documentary and short films by established and emerging African directors from 18 countries. The Cascade Festival of African Films shows us Africa through the eyes of Africans, rather than a vision of Africa packaged for Western viewers.  The films celebrate Africa’s achievements, expose its failures, and reveal possibilities for a hopeful future.

FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC  |  THURSDAYS – SATURDAYS
