The Silicon Valley African Film Festival (SVAFF) 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 mission of the festival is to promote an understanding and appreciation of Africa and Africans through moving images. Now in its 7th year, the weekend festival takes the audience on a journey across the vast African continent in a showcase of over 40 films by Africa’s seasoned and emerging filmmakers, post-screening dialogue with filmmakers, workshops, visual art exhibition, panel discussions, live entertainment, food, etc.
SVAFF is produced by Oriki Theater, a Mountain View, California based performing arts organization, in partnership with the Community School of Music and Arts (CSMA), Mountain View, California.
