The Americas Film Festival of New York

DAY 5  | Shorts Program 3

TAFFNY represents the rich diversity of the cultures, languages and stories of North America, Central America, and South America along with their associated islands. The festival is a project of the Division of Interdisciplinary Studies at the Center for Worker Education of City College of New York (The City University of New York - CUNY), in collaboration with the Cervantes Institute of NY and the National Museum of the American Indian. TAFFNY aims to create a new culture of cinematography appreciation by providing a dynamic space for the public and artists to meet, reflect on multiculturalism and diversity in our society, while promoting the work of new and emerging filmmakers.

β€œFor the last 11 years, the City College NY Division of Interdisciplinary Studies at CWE has been offering a wide range of talks on books, poetry, human rights, hip-hop, visual arts and photo exhibits as a way to expose students to a broader cultural experience.

In collaboration with like-minded institutions in downtown Manhattan, we believe that a Film Festival, featuring works by established and up-and-coming filmmakers from the Americas, would be a natural extension of our efforts to give them a well-rounded academic curriculum. 

This latest endeavor also fits well with our vision of making the Center an exciting cultural destination for students, faculty and the general public alike.” 

- Dean Juan Carlos Mercado
