25th Annual African Diaspora International Film Festival 2017

November 3, 2017

The African Diaspora International Film Festival (ADIFF) celebrates its 25th anniversary with a total of 64 films from 31 countries including 31 World, US and NY Premieres. Screenings will be held in three venues in Manhattan: Teachers College, Columbia University, Cinema Village and MIST Harlem.

The films in ADIFF 2017 – some coming directly from important national and international film festivals such as Sundance, Toronto or Berlinale – illustrate the diversification of the global film industry, from portraits of trailblazers of yesterday and today (Winnie, Sammy Davis Jr. above, Mama Africa: Miriam Makeba) to intimate stories that will touch the audience in many ways (The Citizen, Foreign Body, Rosa Chumbe).

National and international award-winning actors and filmmakers are celebrated in ADIFF this year including Bill Duke, Mika Kaurismaki, Hiam Abbass, Raja Amari, Roland Vranik, and Sam Pollard.
