NYC: New York African Film Festival – 4/5 to 5/28

 

April and May will be peppered with some awesome events compliments of the 19th New York African Film Festival (NYAFF), “a two-month event that explores notions of home and homeland through films, live performances and panel discussions.”

There are a few “must attend” events for this season that we’d like to highlight. This Thursday, April 5th will kick off the festival with a special preview of what’s in store for the festival along with a live performance by DJ Spooky. April 11th will be a screening of Mama Africa, a portrait of the illustrious artist and activist Miriam Makeba. April 13th feature the NYAFF centerpiece film, Relentless, which stars none other than the fiery and all too lovable Nneka.

To note, the April 5th event is free and does not require RSVP.
