Friends of CFAF

Become a Friend of CFAF today by making an annual contribution to help bring thought-provoking new African films and African film directors to Portland audiences free of charge. We are the longest-running African Film Festival in the U.S., and we depend on your support to keep this important free community event happening year after year.

While donations in all amounts, large and small, are welcome, to become a Friend of CFAF we ask for a minimum donation of $35 annually or $25 for students, artists, and seniors.

As a Friend of CFAF, you become an important member of the community committed to sustaining the Cascade Festival of African Films. Friends of CFAF will receive invitations to film preview parties, receptions for visiting film directors, and other events during the festival season.

If you prefer to pay by check, please make your check payable to the PCC Foundation, earmarked “CFAF” or “Friends of CFAF,” and mail it to the PCC Foundation, P.O. Box 19000, Portland, OR 97280-0990.
