The third annual Portland Black Film Festival, Feb. 5 – 21, 2015, focuses on African-American women directors

Portland, Oregon – The 2015 Portland Black Film Festival, screening February 5 – 21 at the Hollywood Theatre, will concentrate this year on the important contributions to cinema of African-American women directors.

Organized by Ariella Tai and David Walker, the third annual Portland Black Film Festival aims to offer diverse perspectives and stories in an art form all too often dominated by Caucasian men.  The Festival features six outstanding programs, including documentaries and narrative films, covering a variety of topics from politics, music, problems faced by urban youth, and more.  On February 5, the Festival kicks off with a newly restored 35mm screening of Julie Dash’s seminal film Daughters of the Dust, selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” in 2004.

The full Portland Black Film Festival line-up is as follows:  http://www.ThePortlandAlliance.org/hollywoodtheatre

They shot him 23 times after tazing him while he sat in the driver's seat. Later police said Keaton had a gun, but have yet to produce it.
    • Please show up to support the family.
