The annual New York Forum of Amazigh Film (NYFAF) is a showcase of feature, documentary, and short films about the Amazigh or "Berber" people of North Africa and in the diaspora. NYFAF's mission is to create a space where filmmakers, artists, and scholars, whose work focuses on indigenous Amazigh identity and culture, can gather yearly to share their knowledge and enthusiasm with a diverse audience and foster dialogue across local, transnational, and global issues. Through pre- and post-screening Q & As, live performances, and exhibitions of art and artifacts, the Forum engages students, faculty, and community participants in experiential Global Learning as it seeks to disseminate Amazigh cinema and promote an understanding of the unique history, culture, and language of Amazigh peoples in North Africa and in the diaspora.
