2021 Pan African Film Festival set to hold
The 29th edition of Pan African Film and Arts Festival will hold February 28 to March 14, 2021, in Los Angeles, United States of America.
Popularly called PAFF, the festival has the goal of presenting and showcasing the broad spectrum of black creative works; particularly those that reinforce positive images and help destroy negative stereotypes.
The organisers believe that film and art can lead to better understanding and foster communication between peoples of diverse cultures, races, and lifestyles, while at the same time serve as a vehicle to initiate dialogue on the important issues of our times.
Established in 1992, PAFF is a non-profit corporation dedicated to the promotion of cultural understanding among peoples of African descent. It is dedicated to racial tolerance through the exhibition of film, art, and creative expression. Since 1992, every year PAFF-LA showcases over 150 new films and over 100 fine artists and unique craft persons from the United States, Africa, the Caribbean, Latin America, South America, Europe, the South Pacific, and Canada, all showcasing the diversity and complexity of people of African descent. In addition to films and art, PAFF presents the SpokenWord Fest and PAFF Comedy LOL, presenting America’s hottest wordsmiths and established and emerging comedians.
The highlight of this edition of PAFF includes special red carpet screenings and receptions as well as a variety of other special events such as PAFF Talks and the PAFF Institute, which feature Clips & Conversations, one-on-one, workshops and panels headed by industry professionals discussing various topics on acting, directing and other film industry-related topics
