The 26th annual Pan African Film and Arts Festival is just around the corner, and as always the event will be a cradle for the best and brightest in black art and cinema.

With close to 180 films on the lineup, from around 44 different countries, this year's festival is set to deliver a diverse collection of films relating to Africa and the diaspora.

We wish we could watch every film, but seeing as how time is limited, we've had to narrow down some of the ones that we're most anticipating.

Below we give you 15 films that we'll be checking for at this year's Pan African Film and Arts Festival. View our selection below as well as synopses directly from the Pan African Film Festival below, including On Monday of Last Week—based on Chimamanda Adiche's short story by the same name—Oscar nominated short Watu Wote, and the closing night's feature The Forgiven, starring Forrest Whitaker as Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
