We established this association because we wanted to create a group for Cape Verdean Americans who weren't familiar or had questions about their unique culture. We also wanted to get people of all ages to get together and bond over shared interests. We offer exciting, fun events throughout the year.
We are always pleased to welcome new members to CVAFF. Please stop by - we would love to meet you!

The CVAFF will showcase Independent Films from Cape Verde, Brazil and West Africa as well as American Films from all ethnicities. Believing that education is key, The CVAFF will also be home to all Cape Verdean Americans out there who come from mixed families and don't speak the language (Kriolu) nor know that much about their own culture.
