(AFF), in partnership with the Museum of Art and Design (MAD), will celebrate both entities' spotlight on the contemporary artistic voices of the Diaspora  The 18th New York African Film Festival and 'The Global Africa Project', through a panel discussion and film screening at the Museum of Art and Design Theater. The African Diaspora focus of both AFF and MAD is timely as 2011 has been designated the 'International Year of the Peoples of African Descent' by the United Nations. The festival and museum will present a historical overview of the exhibition of contemporary artistic works of the African Diaspora through a dynamic panel of international artists, including Xenobia Bailey (textile artist and writer), Harry Belafonte (actor, singer and humanitarian) and Zina Saro-wiwa (filmmaker and curator). Following the panel will be a screening of the 1966 film African Rhythmus  a visually stunning fifty-minute Soviet survey of the First World Festival of Negro Arts (now known as the World Festival of Black Arts and Culture), first held in Dakar, Senegal in 1966.
