19th NY Annual African Film Festival

Presented under the banner theme 21st Century: The Homecoming, this year’s New York African Film Festival will screen contemporary and classic African films that explore the notion of home and homeland, from the legacy of music legend Miriam Makeba (subject of our Opening Night film, Mama Africa) to disaporic visions like the New York-set Restless City, which comes direct from its acclaimed premiere at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. In addition, to mark the 100th anniversary of the African National Congress (ANC), NYAFF will pay homage through performances by artists working in music, dance and film.

Don’t miss this eclectic sampling of some of the most popular dramas, documentaries and experimental works currently unfolding on screens across the African continent. Series programmed by Richard Peña for the Film Society of Lincoln Center and Mahen Bonetti of African Film Festival, Inc.
