Africa Through African Lenses

2024 FestivalFebruary 2 – March 2


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. Although the films cannot represent an entire continent, we hope to encourage American viewers to become interested in and study African cultures.


Film Submissions Are Now Open for our 35th African Film Festival. Take advantage of our “Early Bird” discount until June 7th and submit your captivating projects across all genres. We eagerly await the opportunity to showcase your talent. Final submissions are due by July 31st.

Submit here on FilmFreeway.
