In a special hour-long episode, The Film Show brings listeners a preview of new and returning film festivals for February.
First, Jenn Chavez asks filmmaker, critic, and Portland Black Film Festival organizer David Walker what audiences can expect from this first-ever showcase of historical (and occasionally hysterical) African-American-themed cinema coming to the Hollywood Theatre.
Then, we're joined by Allison Mobley and Tara Foster, coordinators for the Cascade Festival of African Films, whose diverse lineup remains relevant and surprising after 23 years in the community.
And finally, Thomas Phillipson and Nick Bruno of the Portland International Film Festival drop by, along with local filmmaker Chel White, for a roundtable discussion with S.W. Conser. Chel's short film Bird of Flames is a highlight of the Short Cuts V: Made In Oregon anthology screening, an experimental music video collaboration with David Lynch and Chrysta Bell.
