PAFF's Mission

Established in 1992, The Pan African Film Festival (PAFF) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation dedicated to the promotion of cultural understanding among peoples of African descent. PAFF is dedicated to racial tolerance 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 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.

Be a Match

Be A Match is proud to partner with the Pan African Film Festival. We help patients find genetically matched donors so they can receive a life-saving blood stem cell transplant.

Black and African-American patients with sickle cell and other deadly diseases need genetically matched donors to provide life-saving blood stem cells. You could be someone’s cure.
