About PAFF

The Pan African Film & Arts Festival (PAFF) is America's largest & most prestigious Black film festival. Each year, it screens more than 150 films made by &/or about people of African descent from around the world. PAFF holds the distinction of being the largest Black History Month event in the country. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences (AMPAS) has designated PAFF as an official qualifying film festival for live action & animation short films.

PAFF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, founded in 1992 by award-winning actor Danny Glover (“The Color Purple,” “Lethal Weapon” movie franchise), Emmy Award-winning actress Ja’Net DuBois (best known for her role as Willona in the TV series, “Good Times”) & executive director, Ayuko Babu, an international legal, cultural & political consultant who specializes in Pan African Affairs. PAFF is dedicated to the promotion of ethnic & racial respect & tolerance through the exhibit of films, art & creative expression.

The goal of PAFF is to present & showcase the broad spectrum of Black creative works, particularly those that reinforce positive images, help to destroy negative stereotypes and depict an expanded vision of the Black experience. PAFF believes film & art can lead to better understanding & foster communication between peoples of diverse cultures, races, ethnicities, & lifestyles in an entertaining way while @ the same time, serving as a vehicle to initiate dialogue on the important issues of our times.

W/o the support of people like you, we would not be able to carry out our mission. No amount is too small, please donate today.
