Recently the NYC African Film Festival celebrated the launch of their 17th year with a gala event at the world famous Lincoln Center. Jefferey Wright and Sahr Ngaujah ( the star of the Fela Musical) were some of the celebrities in the building noshing on sumptuous Pan-African dishes and dancing into the wee hours of the morning.
The NYC Film Festival has been a critical outlet for filmmakers from the African diaspora to showcase their films and network with their colleagues from the film community. In addition to screening films, the festival organizes a number of panels and workshops which are open to the public. The NYC African Film Festival will be going on until the end of May.
