More Than Just A Festival

The New York African Film Festival (NYAFF) was launched in 1993. Film Society of Lincoln Center, Brooklyn Academy of Music, and Maysles Cinema Institute have become principal hosts of the festival. NYAFF invites filmmakers to NYC to present their work and hold post-screening discussions with a wide range of audiences. Our round-table forums also allow African filmmakers to connect with film industry professionals and media scholars in the USA.
