About African Film Festival of New York

For the past decade, African Film Festival, Inc. has bridged the divide between post-colonial Africa and the American public through the medium of film. 

AFF's unique place in the international arts community is distinguished not only by leadership in festival management but a comprehensive approach to the advocacy of African film and culture. We are particularly mindful of the many ways in which cinema is as much a medium of cultural exchange as an educational gate-way.
