The Pan African Film Festival (PAFF) is proud to announce its 20th anniversary of taking movie goers on a cinematic journey with international film screenings from around the globe. PAFF will be held on February 9-20, 2012 in Los Angeles. The film festival is the nation's largest and most prestigious Black film festival. Over the years, it has showcased films from all parts of the world, representing such countries as Angola, Austria, England, Bermuda, Canada, Egypt, Ethiopia, Brazil, Kenya, Mexico, South African, Nigeria, and of course, the United States.

Currently, PAFF is accepting submissions of independent features, shorts, narratives and documentary films made by or about people of African descent.

The film festival will accept submissions of works in progress; however, films and videos must be completed no later than December 31, 2011.
