Felicia R. Lee discusses the 15th Annual African Diaspora Film Festival in this New York Times article, highlighting the fest's events (which runs 17 days) and reflecting on its past. "The festival has been our kid," said co-founder Diarah N'Daw-Spech. "The kid is an adolescent now. When we started out, we had no experience, no connections. We knew nobody. We got some film festival catalogs and started calling people."
