Series: Pan African Film Festival Presents

AFS welcomes Los Angeles’ famed Pan African Film and Arts Festival (PAFF) for their first ever Austin series, presenting a selection of the most acclaimed films from their February 2023 festival. Established in 1992 by Hollywood veterans Danny Glover, the late Ja’Net DuBois (Good Times), and Ayuko Babu (Executive Director), the Pan African Film Festival (PAFF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that has remained dedicated to the promotion of Black stories and images through the exhibition of film, visual art, and other creative expression. As the critically acclaimed largest Black film and arts festival and Black History Month activation in the United States, PAFF has become the quintessential global celebration of Pan-African cultures, and an international beacon for the African diaspora film and arts communities. Pan African Film Festival leaders, including longtime Artistic Director Asantewa Olatunji, will be in attendance to introduce the films.

On June 4 at Austin Public, Pan African Film Festival will lead a free panel discussion for filmmakers on getting into film festivals, featuring representatives from Indie Meme and Cine Las Americas.
