The Los Angeles-based Pan African Film & Arts Festival (PAFF) has been named as one of 90 recipients of cash from the LA Arts Recovery Fund, which was raised for post-pandemic rebuilding.

Initiated by the J Paul Getty Trust and administered by the California Community Foundation, the fund gives grants to small to mid-sized cultural organisations – ranging from visual arts to theatre, music, dance, literary arts and arts education – that demonstrate exceptional regional or local significance.

The grants, ranging from US$5,000 to US$2m, will support these organisations within a period of two to three years to ensure they can sustain vital contributions to their communities, recover and re-envision their futures.

The PAFF posted the following message on Instagram: “The Pan African Film & Arts Festival is thrilled to be a recipient of the LA Arts Recovery Fund!! As one of 90 non-profits receiving grants, we are excited to continue serving and contributing to the rich cultural fabric and economic recovery.”

The PAFF is a non-profit corporation whose goal is to promote cultural understanding among peoples of African descent through exhibiting art and film.
