About SVAFF

Set in beautiful Silicon Valley, San Francisco Bay Area of California – the high-tech capital of the world,
the Silicon Valley African Film Festival (SVAFF) provides audiences a unique lens to the real Africa.

Silicon Valley African Film Festival

The Silicon Valley African Film Festival (SVAFF) promotes an understanding and appreciation of Africa and Africans through moving images. Aptly themed “Africa through the African lens”, it is the only film festival in California that is exclusively focused on films made by African filmmakers and, crucially, provides audiences with exquisite lenses to the real Africa. The festival recognizes and celebrates the creation and discovery of cinematic art and innovation, and provides the San Francisco Bay Area community access to the richness, diversity and vitality of Africa’s creative expressions through the lenses of Africa’s seasoned and emerging filmmakers. SVAFF has built a substantial following and has become an annual destination film event that draws out of state and international guests.
