For the past 25 years, the Pan African Film Festival has called the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza home. PAFF is one the last annual events in the City of Los Angeles that celebrates the African diaspora and Black culture. 

PAFF along with the Taste of Soul and the Martin Luther King Jr. Day Parade are all anchored at the historic and iconic intersection of Crenshaw and MLK Jr. Boulevards.


We wish to thank Capri Urban Investors, Capri Capital Advisors of Chicago and Ken Lombard for the support they’ve given PAFF over the years and we are hopeful that the new owners of the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza will value the festival as much as the quarter of a million attendees that attend our event each year. 


The Pan African Film Festival would like to continue to maintain the special relationship of the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza to the community in which it is located, respecting our longstanding traditions and community celebrations that have taken place there for many decades.


We look forward to having that conversation in the near future with the new owners of the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza to see how we can work together to make that happen.
