Pan African Film Festival Announces Call For Volunteers And Community Collaborators


2010 Signature Festival to Take Place February 10-15 in Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES, CA - The Pan African Film and Arts Festival (PAFF), America's largest and most prestigious Black film and arts festival has announced its annual call for volunteers and community collaborators. Taking place February 10-15, 2010 in Los Angeles, the PAFF was established in 1992, as a non-profit corporation dedicated to the promotion of cultural and racial tolerance and understanding through the exhibition of film, art and creative expression. Each year the PAFF presents and showcases a broad spectrum of Black creative works, particularly those that reinforce positive images and help to destroy negative stereotypes of Africans and African-Americans.


Women, seniors, youth (with parental permission), men, and groups are encouraged to support the 18th annual PAFF by signing up to volunteer. Volunteer applications can be submitted online at www.paff.org. Additional information can be obtained by calling (310) 337-4737 or by emailing volunteer@paff.org.

Community Collaborators

The PAFF is currently inviting local community organizations, fraternities, sororities, and groups to sign up as Community Collaborators on films, panels, and workshops for our 2010 festival. Being a Community Collaborator with the PAFF is a great way to get the message out about your group or organization. The PAFF is expected to reach attract over 240,000 during its run.

Community Collaborators help to promote the PAFF via email, flyers, the Internet, and word of mouth. In return, Community Collaborators are asked to speak briefly to the audience before the beginning of their selected film or event regarding their organization and are allowed to have collateral materials relating to their group at their film screening.

In addition, Community Collaborators receive two free tickets to attend their film or event and priority for group sales, including ticket discounts. All PAFF Community Collaborators are listed online with a hyperlink to their website and in the official PAFF screening guide (if group signs up before December 31, 2009 deadline.)

Whether you are planning an excursion for your church group, book club, or a corporate outing, PAFF has a film or special event that fits your needs. Save BIG when your group of 15 or more attends PAFF.

To find out more information on the PAFF Community Collaborator program and group sales, please submit an application online at www.paff.org, call (310) 337-4737, or email community@paff.org.
