This outstanding event will feature a selection of Black Independent Films from around the world for the sixth consecutive year, showcasing U.S. and Chicago premieres. The African Diaspora Film Festival is an eclectic mix of foreign, independent, classic and urban films representing the global Black experience through an extraordinary range of subjects and artistic approaches.

Created in 1993 by ArtMattan Productions, a company that produces a collection of programs and events promoting Afrocentric theme cultures, ADFF has long been delighting audiences with U.S. and world premieres of independent films, including features, documentaries, animation, and shorts.

The festival will start with a catered reception on June 13 at 6:00pm followed by the screening of Opening Night film: Cuba, an African Odyssey. The screening will be followed by a conversation with Felix Masud, Phd. Professor of History after the screening.
