It’s been an incredible year for Black film and there are sure to be more successful projects coming out of this year’s Pan African Film Festival. The festival runs from February 6-17 with most of the screenings at Baldwin Hill’s Crenshaw Plaza’s Rave Theater complex.
As usual, the companion Arts Festival features over 100 established and emerging fine artists and quality craftspeople from the US and the world over whose aesthetic is rooted in Africa and its Diaspora. You’ll see an incredible display of art, fashion, jewelry, home décor and more with something for every taste and budget.
PAFF founder Ayuko Babu talks about how the festival started, this year’s outstanding lineup of films, and his vision for the future.
