For the past nineteen years, the Arts Facet of The Brooklyn Chapter of Links has produced “Linkages: The Women of African Descent Film Festival (WADFF).”
Due to the adherence of COVID-19 protocols for health care and safety, WADFF will take place via Facebook livestream. This year, WADFF will screen 24 films, featuring narrative and documentary films by independent filmmakers and youth filmmakers, selected by a jury of peers and members of The Brooklyn Chapter of The Links, Inc. A new element of the festival will comprise of personal clips from our filmmakers regarding their films and their experiences being an artist during this pandemic.
All WADFF films are written, directed and/or produced by women of African descent, and tell stories of empowerment, sisterhood, leadership, and positive and challenging relationships. Criteria for selection include the filmmaker’s ability to depict the positive linkages that women of African descent have to their families, friends and communities.
The 19th Annual Women of African Descent Film Festival and Youth Film Festival is underwritten with Local Arts Support (NYSCA) which is made possible with public funds from the Decentralization Program of the New York State Council of the Arts, administered in Kings County by the Brooklyn
