The Nation’s Oldest and Largest Festival of Arab Films

The flagship event of the Arab Film and Media Institute, the Arab Film Festival is the longest running independent festival of its kind in North America. Launched in 1996, the festival's mission is to present the best of contemporary films that illuminate the richness of Arab culture through authentic narratives and images, providing insight into the beauty and complexity of the Arab world.

The festival also offers special programming to local audiences, and unprecedented access to the diversity and range of authentic Arab experiences. The festival has gained an international reputation for excellence and offers its audiences access to media that reflects the lives of under-represented and provocative themes and groups on a cultural and societal level.

The 25th edition runs November 18-24, 2021, in-person throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, with a virtual track open nationally

To celebrate this partnership, AFSF members can benefit from 25% off every screening by entering the code AF@AFF21
