25th edition of the Pan African Film Festival

In February, Los Angeles honours African cinema with more than 150 screenings.

Established in 1992, the Pan African Film Festival is the biggest event of Black History Month, which encompasses the month of February in the US. Each year, more than 150 film screenings focusing on Black culture contribute to the fight against racism. These works are all made by, or are about, people of African descent in the US, Canada, Africa, Europe, Latin America, Asia, the Caribbean and the South Pacific.

For 12 days, this festival promoting tolerance and communication between peoples sets to explore a multitude of Black cultures throughout the world. In addition to the screenings, you can participate in creative workshops offered by professional artists. A ceremony honouring rising film stars closes the festivities. In 2016, more than 40,000 people—fans and professionals alike—attended the PAFF. Even more people are expected for this 25th edition, alongside new revelations and strong emotions!
