2016 African Film Festival

The 23rd edition of the New York African Film Festival opens with a special live, interactive town hall event featuring the Digital Diaspora Family Reunion Roadshow. People of all background are invited to bring family photos (on phones, Ipads, or traditional print photos) to the event for a chance to be selected to share their family stories, and in the process discover the links that underlie our common humanity. Those who wish to come and simply watch the event as audience members are welcome too. A panel discussion with creatives from the African Diaspora will follow the interactive family reunion roadshow. This event is free, but registration is required. Get your free tickets here. Seating is on a first come, first seated basis.
