Pan African Film Festival (1992)
First International Black Film Festival
Pan-Africanism is an ideal; a state of mind,; and in certain cases, a religion. Throughout history, African leaders and intellectuals have dreamed of uniting people of African descent all around the world. After the African Union was created - with a focus on stronger international relations within the African continent and outside - the Pan-African film festival was created with the same ethos in 1992 in Los Angeles. The festival collects, presents, and showcases a broad spectrum of Black creative works, aiming to promote „cultural understanding among people of African descent„. Every year the PAFF showcases over one hundred and fifty new films and over one hundred artists.
