17th Annual New York African Film Festival, April 7th to May 31st

New York City — The place to celebrate!  The NYAFF kicks off their 17th annual festival today!

The New York African Film Festival (NYAFF) was established in 1993 with our festival co-organizer, the Film Society of Lincoln Center. This flagship program of screenings and panel discussions was presented bi-annually until 1998 and is now an annual spring event. Screenings feature critically acclaimed releases of feature- and short-format works by African directors of the global diaspora and their counterparts. The New York African Film Festival is presented annually at the Walter Reade Theater by African Film Festival, Inc. and the Film Society of Lincoln Center. Subsequent screenings are held at the Brooklyn Academy of Music and additional venues throughout New York City.
