The African Diaspora International Film Festival 2021 is virtual at nyadiff.org over Memorial Day Weekend, from Friday, May 28 to Monday, May 31, 2021. $7 (pay what you can). An All Access Pass is $65
Films can be screened in the U.S. and U.S. colonies.
This is a really interesting film festival because it screens films from countries we don’t hear about much in New York City. But Africa is mother, the mother of all humanity, and these are mother countries for many of us.
