ABOUT US

Mission:
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 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.

“For the last seven 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 liked-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
