The 2024 Pan African Film & Art Festival (PAFF) takes place over two weeks, February 6-19 in Los Angeles at the Cinemark Baldwin Hills & XD and Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza with more than 140 film screenings, Q&As, industry panels and social events. Since its beginning in 1992, the PAFF has promoted and showcased Black stories, images and visual arts reinforcing positive stories and dispelling negative stereotypes with a broad spectrum of Black creative works. The Pan African Film & Art Festival is an Oscar-qualifying festival for animation and live action films.

Inspired by acclaimed Los Angeles filmmaker John Singleton, a partnership between the City of Los Angeles and the Pan African Film Festival has announced the second season of their screenwriting competition: The John Singleton Short Film Competition. Three filmmakers will be awarded $20,000 each for the production and completion of a live-action narrative short film of their winning screenplays.
