Community Programs

AFF brings African films directly to New York neighborhoods with limited cultural resources, taking African cinema out of the art house and into the community. These screenings reach many who may be unable to attend our annual Festival due to cost or location.

Community-based program partners have included cultural institutions and city agencies, such as Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, Aaron Davis Hall, City College, Ocularis, and the CityParks Foundation, The Trust for Governors Island, Queens Museum of Art, Bronx Museum of the Arts, Columbia University Institute of African Studies, among others, to bring free film screenings, music and dance, workshops, panels and art shows to the public.
