This season brings back nostalgic memories of growing up in Africa, enjoying stories of the birth of Christ and the three wise men; dancing to the drum and gong beats of masquerades from house to house; flaunting new Christmas outfit from our parents; and spending time with relatives that came from far and wide to celebrate.

No matter what your own experience may have been, we hope you enjoy yourself. As we embark on African Storytelling Series on June 29th, 2018; document your Christmas experience to share with us during the Film Festival.

We wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and Prosperous New Year.


Good News

TAFF is collaborating with one of the best universities in the State of Texas to bring Master Acting Class and African Film Symposium to students, the community, friends of Africa, and filmmakers. A press release will be published in the Spring of 2018 on this.

We want to keep expanding our relationship with different universities with an ultimate goal of making it possible for the less privileged young African female aspiring filmmakers to gain opportunity to study film in any of the institutions.


Submit Your Film

We are still accepting films until the end of February 2018. Do not wait until the last minute to send your film. We look forward to seeing you in Dallas, come July 2018. Thank you for your continued support as we work together to Bridge Cultures Through Film.




TAFF welcomes sponsors. An effort such as this is not without strong collaborators and supporters who share our vision. Please contact us if you would like to be a sponsor. TAFF welcomes volunteers.
