The 2012 New York African Film Festival, presented under the banner 21st Century: The Homecoming is a two-month multi-venue event in New York City exploring notions of home and homeland through films and their protagonists.
As has been our tradition since the founding of the NYAFF, we continue to present the best in contemporary and classic African cinema, with the goal of challenging the audience’s preconceptions, erasing the limits between popular and high art, and placing genres such as melodrama, comedy and documentary at the center of the continent’s vibrant cinematographic production.
