About African Film Festival New York

Over the last twenty years, AFF has offered year-round programming showcasing new and classic films to the public through a number of diverse productions. These programs honor AFF’s overarching mission to use African cinema to promote and increase knowledge and understanding of African arts, literature and culture; to develop a non-African audience for African films; and to expand the opportunities for the distribution of African films in the United States and abroad.


About 3rd i NY

3rd I New York’s monthly film/video/media salon is designed by local filmmakers and cultural producers to showcase the works of independent media makers of South Asian, Central Asian, and Arab descent. Providing alternative forums for these filmmakers who often have few venues to showcase their work and whose cultures and histories are often demonized or misrepresented in mainstream media, not only increases their visibility, but also provides a social forum for peers and audiences to participate in an ongoing discussion.


Sponsors

3rdi NY Film Programming is made possible in part with public funds from the Fund for Creative Communities, supported by New York State Council on the Arts, and the Manhattan Community Arts Fund, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, both in partnership with the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. Alwan for the Arts hosts our monthly screenings series. We are thankful to the SINGH Foundation for acting as our fiscal sponsor.
