The Langston Hughes African American Film Festival (LHAAFF) is an annual event presented by the Langston Hughes Performing Arts Center in Central Seattle. The LHAAFF will celebrate its fourth year with nine days of films, April 21-29, 2007. All are welcome.
The LHAAFF presents films from independent filmmakers from around the world. The LHAAFF features panel discussions, screenplay readings, matinée screenings for middle and high school youth and in-depth discussions with filmmakers, industry professionals and local community leaders.
The Underground Railroad, a project of the annual Langston Hughes African American Film Festival, is a fall - through -winter film and discussion series. Using the metaphor of a series of strategically located “Safe Houses” in Seattle neighborhoods, the Underground Railroad is a series of intimate screenings designed to build community across the aisle and across neighborhoods. Each Safe House along the trail brings forth a different provocative work about African American life, leading to ‘freedom at the annual Langston Hughes African American Film Festival in April.
