The Arab Film Festival is the largest independent annual showcase of Arab films and filmmakers in the country. The festival has an international standing and is considered one of the most important Arab film festivals outside the Arab world. AFF strives to present the best contemporary films that provide insight into the beauty, complexity and diversity of the Arab world alongside realistic perspectives on Arab people, culture, art, history and politics.
In 2017 the Arab Film Festival launched the Arab Film and Media Institute. AFMI is a unique ecosystem to find, nurture, connect, and develop Arab film and media projects and empower local Arab talent to tell their communities’ stories in their own voices.
