Portland Black Film Festival

For years, the Hollywood Theatre's Portland Black Film Festival has brought some fantastic films to town—films from African American filmmakers, films that focus on Black lives and experiences, and films that are worth a look from everybody. The 2018 edition, curated by local comics writer, filmmaker, and educator David Walker, is no different, filling February with a wide-ranging selection of movies... and the great Joe Morton, the festival's guest of honor. Perhaps best known from his role on Scandal and for causing the robot apocalypse in Terminator 2: Judgment Day (THANKS, JOE), Morton will be in attendance for a 35mm screening of his 1984 comedy classic Brother From Another Planet, in which “The Brother” (Morton) lands on Earth and gets an apartment in Harlem (screens Sat Feb 24). There's a bunch of other must-see stuff too, including a showcase of shorts made by local Black filmmakers (Sun Feb 25) a special Re-Run Theater focused on hip-hop videos (Wed Feb 28), and more. Complete schedule at hollywoodtheatre.org.
