The New York African Film Festival is dedicated to bringing films from the continent and diaspora to New York City and offering a glimpse of the ever-evolving face of contemporary Africa. Watch trailers for some of the films in the festival's 22nd edition.
We had a busy weekend! Check out photos of Anika Noni Rose and Mayor Bill de Blasio at the New York African Film Festival, plus James Franco and Devonté Hynes at the opening of Palo Alto.
Get a taste of the week to come at Film Society with trailers for Malick's To the Wonder, the Brazilian master's Bye Bye Brazil and Orfeu, fun-for-the-whole-family Gershwin musical Funny Face starring Hepburn and Fred Astaire, and more!
Our second weekly column spotlighting emerging film talent focuses on Frances Bodomo, whose short Boneshaker stars Oscar-nominated actress Quvenzhané Wallis, premiered at Sundance, and screens this week in the 20th New York African Film Festival.
