about PAFF

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.It is PAFF’s goal to present and showcase the broad spectrum of Black creative works, particularly those that reinforce positive images and help to destroy negative stereotypes. We believe film and art can lead to better understanding and foster communication between peoples of diverse cultures, races, and lifestyles, while at the same time, serve as a vehicle to initiate dialogue on the important issues of our times.


When Matias goes to delivery his dowry to his fiancé’s father, an unexpected accident makes him realize how much he is willing to fight for her love.

  1. The Pan African Film Festival sounds like a lot of fun. It’s been a great year for African film already. Kinyarwanda screened at Sundance, an Algerian film is up for the Best Foreign Language Film, and the South African film White Wedding finally came out on dvd. I’ve been wanting to see White Wedding ever since South Africa submitted it to the Oscars a year ago. It looks like the rare film that manages to be incredibly uplifting while still approaching very real and difficult issues, like the racial tensions that are still a problem in South Africa.
