StudentFest

Pan African Film & Arts Festival 2018 StudentFEST

For over two decades PAFF has presented the StudentFEST, which is a free showcase of films tailored to middle and high-school aged students. Each year 6,000 to 7,000 Los Angeles city and county schools bring both students and teachers to attend this free program showcasing films that introduce them to conscious and creative filmmaking as well as content dealing with issues that are 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.
