This is a great time of year to see movies, and lucky for us, we have a couple of film festivals happening.
- PINE Festival
January 27-February 5
Portland International Nature and Environmental is the name, and while the web site is maddening, there are some interesting things happening, like a Children's Program (Saturday noon-2pm [w/ breaks]), and a Bike and Adventure Film Festival tonight!
- Reel Music
January 6-February 12
I'm late with this, I know. But 7 films remain, including
LOMAX THE SONGHUNTER, COLTRANE LEGACY, MY NAME IS ALBERT AYLER, and THE DEVIL AND DANIEL JOHNSTON.
- Cascade Festival of African Films
February 3-March 4
28 films from the African Diaspora, most from the last five years. They have a dynamite selection of films, including Darwin's Nightmare, Tasuma, The Fighter, From Florida To Coahuila, Coming to England (based on the book of the same name), and Ko-Falen / The Gift Exchange (which involves Jackson Middle School[!!!!])
And, unlike all the other festivals mentioned, these films are free.
- Portland International Film Festival
134 films from ~36 countries
