Black History Month at Pickford Film Center

Pickford Film Center presents Elvis Mitchell's new documentary—which examines the craft and power of Black films released from the landmark era of the 1970s—alongside three films featured in the documentary, Night of the Living Dead (1968), Shaft (1971) and The Wiz (1978).

American film critic Elvis Mitchell's deep-dive documentary IS THAT BLACK ENOUGH FOR?!? explores the explosion of Black cinema produced in the 1970s and its genres, stars, and auteurs. The title, IS THAT BLACK ENOUGH FOR YOU?!?, is a reference to the 1970 film by Ossie Davis, COTTON COMES TO HARLEM.

Founded in 1998, the Pickford Film Center serves the Whatcom community by screening independent films 365 days a year, producing and presenting the annual Doctober film festival, the Bellingham Children’s Film Festival, numerous film series and special events.  The Pickford offers free documentary film showings to all Whatcom middle schools through Doc-ED and partners with students and schools for many other events during the year.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
