NOT GOOD NEWS FROM OUR FRIENDS AT NEXT WEEK'S TORONTO AFRICAN FILM & MUSIC FESTIVAL EVENT


FESTIVAL CANCELLED (AGAIN)

IMMEDIATE RELEASE

TORONTO AFRICAN FILM & MUSIC FESTIVAL EVENT
CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
Toronto, August 23, 2013

ATTENTION: MEDIA, SPONSORS, VISITORS & GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS

The Toronto African Film & Music Festival which was slated to be held August 30 – September 1, at the Toronto International Centre has been postponed. A new date will be announced shortly.

There is one major reason why we are once again postponing the festival. The Federal Government’s Visa services staff are currently on strike and the pending visas for the African performing artists have not been processed as of yet. It has been decided to push back the dates, until the visa’s can be issued for the visiting performers.  This is the third time the event has been postponed and/or moved.

Purchased tickets will be refunded over the next few days. For any further Information please contact Paris Rogers TAFMF Festival Director at 647-852-4072 or INFO@torontoafricanfilmmusicfest.com
