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 had to postpone AWAFFEST 2020 due to Coronavirus. This year, we will hold the festival virtually and we plan to include films from last year for online screening on ROOTFLIX. Thank you for your support and understanding. Stay safe.
