Diaspora Film Festival NYC, an initiative of Diaspora USA Inc., a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization headquartered in New York, USA, celebrates emerging and diverse cultural arts. As a platform for global filmmakers and storytellers, DFFNY provides opportunities for recognition, open dialogue, and industry connections.

Since its inception in 2023, DFFNY has been dedicated to showcasing, supporting, and educating next-gen filmmakers while fostering relationships within the industry. Through workshops, panels, competitions, and networking events, including the InFocus initiative, which champions underrepresented voices, DFFNY strives to combat the lack of diversity in media.

At the heart of DFFNY is its annual film festival, featuring screenings of shorts, documentaries, and animations from around the world. Each screening is followed by a Q&A session with the filmmakers, offering audiences an opportunity to engage directly with the talent. Additionally, the festival includes special receptions, allowing attendees to connect with the filmmakers and celebrate their remarkable work.
