Mizna presents the
Third Annual Minneapolis Arab Film Festival

November 11-17
Heights Theater

Minneapolis, Minnesota

The third annual Minneapolis Arab Film Festival is a week long event showcasing feature-length films, documentaries, and shorts that explore themes related to the Arab and Arab American experience. This annual festival continues to speak to the void in presentation of artistic expression by Arabs in the West and strives to combat stereotypical representation by highlighting the work of Arab artists. The Arab Film Festival will include post-screening discussions with filmmakers Mai Masri, Azza El-Hassan, and Hisham Bishri as well as local scholars Mohammed Bamyeh, Fouzi Slisli and Mazher Al-Zogby.
