Everything you need to know about Afrocomicon’s Annual International Film Festival?

AfroComicCon International Film Festival 2023!

The AFCC International Film Festival is a showcase of innovative filmmaking from talented filmmakers, content creators, and screenwriters. AFCCIFF is a division of AfroComicCon and our 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that features contemporary and interactive works of visual art showcasing films that reflect a number of genres including horror, science-fiction, comic book, animation, superhero, and fantasy.

AfroComicCon’s International Film Festival features a jury composed of media and filmmakers, scholars, curators, and archivists who determine all awards, with the exception of the audience award winner, which will be determined by the audience on the day of the actual film festival.

These topic-related films and their filmmakers are focused on bringing about diversity and inclusion, with a special focus on women and POC. Films submitted to the festival had to be between 3 to 20 minute short(s) and animations that reflect and honor Afrofuturistic representation. Please note only films that fell into the broad category of Afrofuturism and in the genre categories of science-fiction, speculative Black fiction, Horror, fantasy, Anime, superheroes, and comic books were considered for inclusion in the festival.
