A multi-venue, two-month celebration of African arts and culture, taking place from April 2nd through May 31st, 2011, the festival will feature a gallery exhibition, fashion show, panel discussions, Q&As with directors and actors, live performances, and of course, the best in contemporary cinema from Africa and the Diaspora.
The 2011 18th annual New York African Film Festival, in collaboration with Film Society of Lincoln Center, will take place from April 6th through the 12th at the Walter Reade Theater of Lincoln Center and conclude at Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Rose Cinemas, from May 26th through May 31st, 2011.
2011 has been designated as the ‘International Year for the People of African Descent’ by the United Nations. AFF is honoring that declaration with an exploration of the historical and contemporary roles in the arts played by people representing the African Diaspora. This exploration will include a special focus on two countries from which so many people of the African Diaspora draw their roots, and which are both also celebrating 50 years of independence in 2011: Tanzania and Sierra Leone. In addition, the festival will continue to introduce the works of emerging filmmakers from Africa and the Diaspora.
