ADIFF Presents: Transcultural Dialogues Film Series

The African Diaspora International Film Festival (ADIFF) - in collaboration with the Office of Diversity and Community Affairs at Teachers College, Columbia university - hosts the Transcultural Dialogues film series featuring 19 films from 20 countries.

When a person leaves a country, it is because they are no longer able to resolve their problems with dialogue. As soon as they arrive in another culture, the transcultural dialogue starts. Sometimes it is easy, sometimes it is impossible. The stories in this series explore the multiple dialogues that take place when people arrive in a new culture and new society. Films hailing from Senegal, Tunisia, the USA, Curacao, Cape Verde, Belgium, Morocco, France, Hungary, Serbia and more are part of the program.

Ticket prices will range from $10 for one screening/program to $45 for an all-access pass.
