African FILM FESTIVAL New Zealand

Online Festival for entire Australasia 10 December 2021 to 7 January 2022


We are extremely proud of and grateful to our wonderful Patrons, who are some of the most respected leaders and practitioners in the New Zealand arts community. They were a great source of advice and inspiration for us at our inaugural festival in 2015 and we couldn’t be happier that they are with us again this year.
