Fasten your seat belts for a roller coaster of great African stories and films at the African American Museum from June 30th to July 1st. Thanks to our hardworking judges for making these selections. There would be 10 to 15 minutes Q & A after each film. Viewers will have the opportunity to ask some questions, so filmmakers please come ready to answer! It will be fun.

TAFF wishes all the mothers and mothers-to-be a Happy Mothers Day. In the field of Creative Arts that we find ourselves, doing it and taking care of little ones can be a daunting task. We applaud your courage to keep pushing and telling our stories. Many of the films that we are screening this year are by women. From "Zone III" (Central Africa Republic) to "Thereafter" (United Kingdom) to "When Babies Don't Come" (South Africa), and several others; we commend you all. Great job!



TAFF will open on June 29th with TALES UNDER THE MOONLIGHT at the African American Museum as we make more effort and raise awareness in TELLING OUR STORIES. We want to go back to the Roots - before putting them in writing... Scripts... then Film. We have storytellers from Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, and the United States. The Dallas Poetry Slam will be participating. This is a FREE event for Children. Bring them to hear our stories.
