With a successful turn out for our inaugural film festival in July 2020, we managed to champion Arab filmmakers around the world while upholding safety protocols for everyone involved. We are eager to move forward on to our second annual film festival, which will be held on May 27-30, 2021. Given the up-in-the-air nature of our near future, we will be preparing for an in-person festival, with an online contingency. We hope to see you all next year in celebration of Arab films and filmmakers.
