New African Film Festival

March 17–30
Now in its 19th year, 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 30 films from 22 countries, including six U.S. premieres, this year's festival opens with Moses Bwayo and Christopher Sharp's Venice-premiered documentary BOBI WINE: THE PEOPLE'S PRESIDENT, a powerful portrait of the Ugandan opposition leader, former member of parliament, activist and national superstar musician. The festival closes with the Locarno-debuted PUBLIC TOILET AFRICA, a satirical, surreal road movie from Ghanaian director Kofi Ofosu-Yeboah.
