African Film Festival, Inc. (AFF) is thrilled to present the 30th anniversary of its iconic New York African Film Festival (NYAFF), which runs from May 10-June 1, 2023. Under the banner, Freeforms, NYAFF30 will celebrate with a program of over 50 films from more than 25 countries, with screenings taking place at three collaborating venues: Film at Lincoln Center (May 10-16); Maysles Cinema in Harlem (May 19-21), and Brooklyn Academy of Music (May 26-June 1). Launched in 1993, the NYAFF is one of the first film festivals in the United States to reflect on the myriad ways African and diaspora filmmakers have used the moving image to tell their own complex and nuanced stories.
