About the Festival

Established in 1993, the African Diaspora International Film Festival (ADIFF) is a Harlem-based minority-led not-for-profit international film festival that presents, interprets, and educates about films that explore the human experience of people of color all over the world in order to inspire imaginations, disrupt stereotypes and help transform attitudes that perpetuate injustice.

In our reality, people from diverse races, nationalities, and backgrounds come together to enjoy important cinematic works of creativity, intellectual expansion, identity, and equality. In this world, there are no boundaries around people because they are embraced by a universal understanding of humanity. This is the element of commonality that weaves through this annual event of images from Africa, the African Diaspora, and beyond.
