AFRICA USA International Film Festival -- Our Purpose: To provide a venue to showcase films from across the African and North American continents, in the hope of promoting mutual respect and understanding through cultural exchange. Indeed, we believe that only mutual respect and understanding can save the world from endless conflict, misery, waste, and destruction.
Today, more than ever, it is important that we understand that we are all a part of the vast human family -- all with the same cares, trials, and aspirations regardless of our continent, nationality, race, language, socio-economic status, gender, age, or sexual orientation.
The African-USA Film Festival is all about inclusion and representation, giving voice to the voiceless, bringing the invisible to light, and promoting the universality of love and compassion. We recognize that films present a unique way of telling stories to cut through our differences and to find our commonalities as humans existing on this planet at this particular time in history.
Our aim is to do our part to empower filmmakers to share their stories of strife, reconciliation, growth, mutual effort and achievement. Won’t you join us in this effort? We welcome your film submittals at AfricaUSAIntFilmFest.com.
The first Africa USA International Film Festival will take place in mid-Manhattan, New York City on November 5, 2023. In 2024 and thereafter, the ceremony will be held also in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo, hosted by the family of the Congolese Ambassador to the U.S.
For those of you traveling to NYC to attend our festival in person, we will be happy to provide any helpful tourism information and recommendations that our filmmakers and visitors may need to help navigate and make your stay pleasant and productive. Please email us with any questions or comments at AfricaUSAIntFilmFest.com.
Again, are you willing to help save the world through the healing balm of film? If so, we look forward to your submissions! Thank you.
