Afghan Film also known as Afghan Film Organization (AFO) is Afghanistan's state-run film company, established in 1968. The current president is Sahraa Karimi, who attained a PhD in Cinema from the Academy of Performing Arts in Bratislava and is its first female president.[1][2]

It is also a film archive. Many of its contents were destroyed by the Taliban, although some staff members saved valuable films risking their own lives.[3][4] A number of rescue and archival efforts were chronicled in the 2015 documentary A Flickering Truth.[5] An eight-day film festival was launched on August 3, 2019, showcasing 100 films around different cinemas in the country in celebration of the country's 100th anniversary of independence.
