What We Do
The Toronto Arab Film Festival is the first of its kind in Toronto, presenting and promoting pan-Arab films by Arab filmmakers from all over the world.
CINEMA NIGHTS//ليالي السينما
Our year-round film screenings bring diverse audiences together to connect through Arab film, outside of the festival.
Our networking events create opportunities for audiences, filmmakers, and emerging talents to connect and learn from one another.
Toronto Arab Film (TAF) is a non-profit organisation bringing films from and about the Arab world to Toronto audiences. TAF began in 2017 with the goal of addressing a lack of films from the Arab world in Toronto film programming. It has since grown into a multifaceted organisation that promotes the diversity of Arab cultures, builds community, creates opportunities for exchange, and develops emerging artists. TAF is ultimately rooted in a desire to reinstate a tradition that has been lost over time: coming together to watch films.
