African Film Festival

The African Film Festival will virtually present an array of award-winning shorts and full-length features from across Africa March 26-28. All programming is free.

Highlights include “You Will Die at Twenty,” a Sudanese feature which won the grand prize at the Amiens International Film Festival and the Luigi De Laurentiis Award at the Venice Film Festival, and “Baamum Nafi,” a Senegalese drama from filmmaker Mamadou Dia, who will participate in a livestreamed Q&A after the screening.

Now in its 15th year, the festival also will feature its celebrated “Eye on Youth” program, which will showcase shorts from Senegal, Mozambique and Egypt followed by a livestreamed Q&A with the films’ illustrators and animators.
