African Film Festival, Inc. and Film Society of Lincoln Center Present The 22nd NEW YORK AFRICAN FILM FESTIVAL
MAY 6th–12th, 2015

Alwan for the Arts and 3rd i NY are pleased to announce the 22nd New York African Film Festival, presented by African Film Festival, Inc. and The Film Society of Lincoln Center.

Commemorating the International Decade of People of African Descent, this year’s lineup of over 25 titles from more than 15 countries represents a unique opportunity to reflect on the ways African men and women have broken through borders with films and narratives that form part of the global imagination.

The 22nd edition of the New York African Film Festival offers a selection of narrative features and documentaries that places special emphasis on the short format and digital technology, both of which have become conduits for new stories, sounds, and images by freeing their creators from budgetary and technical limitations.

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.


3rd i 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


Alwan's programs are made possible, in part, with public funds from the New York State Council of the Arts (NYSCA) and New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in Partnership with the City Council.
