This Year we are going all online and this will be an opportunity for your entire school to participate. Teachers will have the opportunity to view the movies with the students both in the classroom and at home at anytime convenient to your school programming. We are excited to bring this program to students at home and in the classroom. Parents will be encouraged to watch with their students and teachers can use these historic and coming of age films as a learning tool in the classroom. Teachers are welcome to pre-screen the films within their grade category and select as many films as you wish to view at your school.

Children’s Festival

Each year, the PAFF Children’s Fest proves to be great fun for the entire family! Over 500 children, ages 4-12, and their parents enjoy FREE film screenings, storytelling, and interactive activities all reflecting and rooted in the beauty and artistry of the culture of Africa and its diaspora.

The event will include a special live film screening on Saturday, March 13th that will feature the world-renowned animation from Nigeria LADY BUCKIT AND THE MOTLEY MOPSTERS and on Sunday, March 14th at 11 am PST featuring Disney animation features.
