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 have to postpone AWAFFEST 2020 due to Coronavirus. We will convey new dates once the outbreak is contained and when we work out new contracts with venues based on availability. Thank you for your support and understanding. Stay safe.
We will screen selected films; provide film workshops; host a fun awards night; and City Tour.
