Film Festival Season in Portland
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.
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.
