African hip hop foundation organizes an annual African hip hop film festival. Between 2004 and 2008 the screenings have been organized as a part of Black Soil hip hop filmfestival, the first and largest event screening hip hop films and docs in Europe. Some of the films that the African hip hop film festival premiered have since been picked up by other festivals, tv stations and even distributors around the world.

Apart from films, the festival also showcases African hip hop artists. So far we have had performances by Afrikan Boy, Rich Medina, Pan Africans, Don Klemente & Loovay dj Threesixty, GMB, Concrete & Dson, Vieira (CV/Netherlands), Blaxtar and more.
