The African Diaspora International Film Festival (ADIFF) presents an eclectic mix of urban, classic, independent and foreign films that depict the richness and diversity of the life experience of people of African descent and Indigenous people all over the world.

After the successful run of the African Diaspora International Film Festival Summer Film Series in August at the Riverside Theater and the African Diaspora International Film Festival in Paris, France, ADIFF is back to New York City for its flag event of the year..


EDITO 2011
Welcome to ADIFF 2011!
Welcome to the world of the African Diaspora International Film Festival (ADIFF). In our reality, people of diverse origins, nationalities, orientations and backgrounds come together to celebrate the world of images and ideas that depict the human experience of people of
color all over the world.
The international Black communities-whether in Europe, Latin America or Africa - continue to play a disproportionately marginal role in the art of cinema. Further, many creative and visionary films lay languid, collecting dust without the light of a screening due to the lack of distribution structures or movie theaters in the hands of more sensitive programmers.
Stereotypical images, myths and persistent bad taste characterize many of the films that pass for "good movies" in the name of a
"numbers" game that determines whose world will get to be shown and whose won't.
By placing the spotlight on innovative films that otherwise would be ignored, ADIFF has created a privileged platform for many of these films. The list of titles that have found a distribution deal thanks to their participation in the festival is long and still growing.
We thank filmmakers, ADIFF's old and new family of cinephiles, the theaters, ADIFF's former and current staff and all those who, against all odds, have helped us for the last nineteen years in our mission to enhance the cultural DNA of New York City and beyond.

We thank you all and wish you a wonderful ADIFF 2011!
