You are cordially invited

On behalf of TAFF organization, I am pleased to invite you to our second annual festival, scheduled for June 30th to July 3rd in Dallas, Texas, USA. The 2016 inauguration of TAFF attracted several filmmakers, fans, distributors, and marketers globally. We anticipate higher participation this year.



Over four days and three nights, our attendees will enjoy film screenings, seminars and networking with other professionals, appearances, red carpet photo ops preceding the opening night and the grand finale—the Awards Gala. Screenings will be followed by Q&A session with viewers, filmmakers, actors, directors and producers. We would like you to attend TAFF this year to be a part of the effort in growing African film industry and for an opportunity to meet other practitioners for future collaborations.


See you in Dallas!
