The 16th Annual Pan African Film Festival is now at an end for 2008 and gearing up to prepare for 2009’s festival. In a word the PAFF was excellent. It covered the gamut from film to live performances, art and music.
There is hope for the future of Black/African American cinema. Men and women of all ages are adding their voices and vision to an art form that breaks down cultural barriers, educates and entertains. The variety of films attests to the ingenuity, creativity and passion of these filmmakers.
