Pan African Film & Arts Festival 2018 StudentFEST
A free showcase of films tailored to students. For over two decades PAFF has presented StudentFEST. Each year 6,000 to 7,000 Los Angeles city and county high school, middle school and elementary school students and their teachers attend this free program showcasing films dealing with issues important to youth, such as teen pregnancy, AIDS prevention, literacy, cultural and racial respect, teen self-esteem and gang prevention. Before and after the screenings, speakers working in areas related to the subject matter of the films conduct positive and interactive discussions with the students.
