Reaching back into the past and forward into the unknown, the New York African Film Festival takes cinema of all genres throughout Africa and the African Diaspora to weave a story of the present. From the archival to the experimental, classic fictional narrative to documentary, the festival, now in its 26th year, selects treasured stories of the past to contextualize the present and all of its possible futures.

Co-presented by Film at Lincoln Center and African Film Festival, Inc. Organized by Mahen Bonetti, Francoise Bouffault, and Dara Ojugbele, African Film Festival, Inc. The FESPACO Retrospective program is co-curated by Amélie Garin-Davet and African Film Festival, Inc.
