About the event
Established in 2003 by Artistic Director Jacqueline Moscou, the first Langston Hughes African American Film Festival was a production of the Langston Hughes Performing Arts Center, later known as the Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute(LPHAI). From the start, the Langston Hughes African American Film Festival (LHAAFF) sought to give audiences access to underrepresented perspectives and emerging filmmakers from across the African diaspora. Curator Zola Mumford researched and programmed films from many different countries and genres and invited Karen Toering, a media producer and a leader in nonprofit arts and funding organizations, to join the festival in 2004. With Toering as Program Director, the LHAAFF grew from three days of films and discussions to nine.
