2024 New African Film Festival
Celebrating its 20th edition, the New African Film Festival (NAFF), presented by AFI and Africa World Now Project, brings the vibrancy of African filmmaking from all corners of the continent and across the diaspora to the Washington, DC area. Featuring 26 films from 16 countries, including three U.S. premieres, this year's festival opens with Mohamed Kordofani's Cannes-premiered GOODBYE JULIA, a rich moral drama deftly exploring the personal and political divide between a wealthy Muslim woman and a poor Christian mother from South Sudan, set on the precipice of Sudan's major split in 2011. The festival closes with the Slamdance award-winner AFRICAN GIANTS, which follows two first-generation Sierra Leonean American siblings navigating the changing dynamics of brotherhood after a surprise announcement.
