Harlem African Animation Festival
Join us for the second edition of the Harlem African Animation Festival on November 8-9, 2023, featuring film screenings and engaging discussions. The festival celebrates African animators, connecting film and media professionals to explore storytelling and industry-related topics. Our goal is to provide a gateway to contemporary Africa, foster a sense of belonging for African immigrants, and promote dialogue and mutual understanding between Africa and the Black diasporas.
Established in 2021, this festival is the first of its kind in the United States, exclusively dedicated to African animated films and series. Animation has a rich history in Africa, mirroring the growth of the African screen media production industry, just like live-action cinema.
Wednesday, November 8th
Thursday, November 9th
Following the screenings please join us for a brief conversation with Mounia Aram as she discusses the African animation market and what lies ahead for future animators.
