The African Diaspora International Film Festival (ADIFF) is back for its 24th edition from Nov. 25 to Dec. 11 with a total of 66 films from 30 countries including 34 US and NY Premieres. Screenings will be held in three venues in Manhattan: Teachers College at Columbia University, Cinépolis Chelsea and MIST in Harlem.
The films in ADIFF 2016 — some coming directly from important international film festivals such as Toronto, Cannes, Vancouver, Montreal, FESPACO or Rotterdam — illustrate the diversification of the global film industry, from impressive epic dramas (93 days, 76) to intimate stories that will touch the audience in many ways (While We Live, Sins of the Flesh, Montreal White City, Jerusa’s Day).
National and international celebrities as well as award-winning filmmakers are celebrated in ADIFF this year including Zeinabu Irene Davis, Jimmy Jean Louis, Dani Kouyaté, Eugene Corr, Danny Glover, O.C. Ukeje,
