NYC Anarchist Film Festival Seeking Content, Deadline Extended 1 Month

The NYC Anarchist Film Festival is now being held Oct. 2, and so the deadline for contributions has been moved to Sept. 1.

The NYC Anarchist Film Festival is seeking contributions celebrating the irrepressible spirits of solidarity and resistance amid a world in crisis. Now in its 15th year, the AFF has showcased stories of people across the globe who fight for a better future against exploitation, oppression, and terror. While we will consider all entries, this year we are especially interested in films about the pandemic and its toll, the movement for racial justice, rising authoritarianism, and historical struggles that give context to present ones.
