ABOUT THE PAN AFRICAN FILM & ARTS FESTIVAL
Established in 1992, the Pan African Film & Arts Festival (PAFF) - a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization - has remained dedicated to showcasing a broad spectrum of Black creative works; particularly, those that reinforce positive images and help to advance cultures, races and lifestyles. PAFF also serves as a vehicle to initiate dialogue on the important issues of our time and aides in the promotion of cultural understanding between peoples of African descent.

Now in its 26th year, the 12-day PAFF experience will feature  75+ fine artists and  170+ new films from over 40 countries within five continents and in 26 languages. This annual  exhibition of film, art, culture and creative expression is the largest Black film festival and the largest Black History Month celebration in the U.S. PAFF attracts  a diverse global audience hailing from the  United States, Africa, the Caribbean, Europe, Canada, South America and the South Pacific, which translates into over  90K art fest attendees, 40K film enthusiasts and 5000 students, annually.
