The Pan African Film and Arts Festival (PAFF) Opening Night Gala is the official start to PAFF. Always a star-studded red carpet affair, the Opening Night Gala is attended by Hollywood celebrities, elected officials, African dignitaries, civic and community leaders, filmmakers, and more. This year’s expected attendance is 800 and will include a screening of the featured film, Q&A with the filmmakers and actor, and after party.

The 16th Annual PAFF Opening Night Gala is sponsored in part by the Namibia Film Commission and will be hosted by 2008 PAFF Celebrity Host Isaiah Washington.
Starring Carl Lumbly, Danny Glover , Joel Haikali, and Obed Emvula, NAMIBIA:
THE STRUGGLE FOR LIBERATION depicts the long struggle waged by the people of Namibia for their independence that was ultimately won with the help of Cuban military volunteers fighting in Angola .
The 1987 battle of Cuito Cuanavale, in which the South African army was decisively defeated, turned the tide in the liberation struggle for all of Southern Africa.
This was one of the key factors that led to Namibian Independence and the election of Sam Nujoma as Namibia 's first President and forced the white supremacist South African government to free President Nelson Mandela and to negotiate with the African National Congress.
