It’s almost that time of year again! The 2016 New York African Film Festival (NYAFF) will be back with new and exciting films (and some classics too!). Under the banner of Modern Days, Ancient Nights: 50 Years of African Filmmaking, the NYAFF will be celebrating the 50 year anniversary of Black Girl by Ousmane Sembene, which screened at Cannes Film Festival in 1966. We’ve got an amazing lineup of narrative, documentary, animation and short films.
In collaboration with Film Society of Lincoln Center, BAMcinématek and Maysles Cinema, this year’s festival will kick off with a special town hall event at Film Society of Lincoln Center’s Amphitheater on Sunday, May 1.
From Film Society of Lincoln Center (May 1 and May 4 – 10), the festival will continue on to Maysles Cinema (May 13 – 15) in Harlem and conclude at Brooklyn Academy of Music (May 26 – 30) in conjunction with DanceAfrica.
Stay tuned for more details on the film line-up, events, screening times, and director/artist appearances and much more!
Without the generous contributions of our supporters, the New York African Film Festival and the other programs of AFF would not be possible! Please consider making a donation today.
