African Women Arts & Film Festival

African Women Arts & Film Festival (AWAFFEST) is a platform to appreciate arts and stories of African women; to celebrate female film practitioners; and to empower aspiring artists. AWAFFEST is held in March to celebrate the International Women’s Month.

For the safety of our filmmakers, artists, fans, supporters, and partners; we will determine whether to continue holding the festival online at ROOTFLIX.COM due to the pandemic nightmare. Thank you for your support and understanding. Stay safe.
