VIRTUAL EVENT. Please visit the event website for current information.
The Cascade Festival of African Films will be held virtually in 2022 with a limited number of in-person screenings. The festival will remain free and open to the public, but films will be shown online. Visit the event website for more details and the list of films!
Founded in 1991, the Cascade Festival of African Films is the longest running annual, non-profit, non-commercial, largely volunteer-run African Film Festival in the United States.
Typically, the festival features documentary and short films by established and emerging African directors from over a dozen countries. The Cascade Festival of African Films shows 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.
