Established in 1992, The Pan African Film Festival (PAFF) is a non-profit corporation dedicated to the promotion of cultural and racial tolerance and understanding through the exhibition of film, art and creative expression. PAFF's goal is to showcase the broad spectrum of Black creative works in the belief that film and art can lead to better understanding and foster communication between peoples of diverse cultures, races, and lifestyles. PAFF presents quality films from the United States, Africa, the Caribbean, Latin America, Europe, the South Pacific and Canada, films that exhibit the diversity and complexity of people of African descent.
Films that receive Jury Awards are selected from six categories: Best Feature Documentary, Best Documentary Short, Best Narrative Short, Best Feature Narrative, and First Time Narrative Feature Directing. All films in competition are also eligible for the PAFF’s Audience Awards as selected by Festival audiences. The PAFF Board of Directors and Programmer Festival Awards are awarded to their pick for Best Documentary and Best Narrative film. A special award from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts/Los Angeles (BAFTA/LA) Festival Choice Award is also awarded.
PAFF is one of America's largest fine art shows featuring prominent and emerging black artists and fine crafts people from around the world showcasing the best in Black fine art, sculpture, photography, unique handmade crafts, home furnishings, designer jewelry, designer fashions and accessories that highlight the artistry and beauty of the African aesthetic.
