Arab Film Fest Collab

December 3 – December 13, 2020

The Arab American National Museum (AANM), the Arab Film and Media Institute (AFMI), ArteEast, and Mizna proudly present the Arab Film Fest Collab (AFFC) from December 3 to 13, 2020. The AFFC is a collectively produced virtual film festival, screening independent Arab cinema for audiences across the United States.

With programs featuring films, panel discussions, and performances from Southwest Asia and North Africa (SWANA), the AFFC highlights Arab, Afro-Arab, and Black SWANA voices, capturing the complexity of the Arabic-speaking world and its diverse narratives. Offering more than 50 short and feature-length films, genres include drama, science fiction, comedy, and documentary. Screening the work of filmmakers from countries like Lebanon, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Egypt, Sudan, Algeria, and Morocco, the AFFC exhibits all films in their original languages with English subtitles.

To make the AFFC accessible to all viewers, the festival offers All-Access passes and individual tickets available for $10 or pay-what-you-can.

All-Access passes are now available for purchase! Buy your passes today at the early bird price of $60 — discounted from $90 for a limited time — and reserve your virtual seat.
