Save the Dates for the 30th New York African Film Festival!

African Film Festival, Inc. (AFF) celebrates the 30th anniversary of the New York African Film Festival (NYAFF) from May 10 to June 1, 2023. Launched in 1993 and one of the first of its kind in the United States, the festival reflects on the myriad ways African and diaspora storytellers have used the moving image as a mold to tell stories with their own nuances and idiosyncrasies. Under the banner Freeforms, the festival presents over 50 films from more than 25 countries that invite audiences to explore the infinite realms of African and diaspora storytelling and embrace its visionary, probing, and fearless spirit.

The 30th-anniversary edition of the New York African Film Festival will be presented in collaboration with Film at Lincoln Center (FLC – May 10 – 16), Maysles Cinema (May 19 – 22), and BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music – May 26 – June 1).

The full festival line-up of screenings and events is to be announced soon.
