Event Info

The Langston Hughes African American Film Festival (LHAAFF) celebrates its 12th year this year, continuing the tradition of presenting positive, provocative and penetrating independent films created by emerging and established filmmakers. Established in 2003, the annual Langston Hughes African American Film Festival (LHAAFF) hosts nine days of film, workshops, filmmaker events, and community celebrations centered around African American independent film. The Seattle, Washington based festival is renowned for presenting positive, provocative and penetrating independent films created by emerging and established filmmakers. Films are selected by a jury panel and include contemporary and vintage offerings, representing local, national and international filmmakers. The festival features panel discussions, and audience ‘talk-backs’ with filmmakers, industry professionals and community leaders to provide a critical lens for featured films. The festival includes a host of evening programs, as well as matinee screenings during the week for middle and high school youth.
