Co-presented by MIZNA and Intermedia Arts, the Arab Film Festival is a four-day showing of new and experimental films by Arab filmmakers from the Arab world. This festival speaks to the void in presentation of artistic expression by Arabs in the West and combats stereotypical representation by highlighting the work of Arab artists. The Arab Film Festival is curated by Rawi Hage and will include a talk by Jack Shaheen and filmmaker Hakim Belabbes.
