ABOUT TORONTO ARAB FILM
Toronto Arab Film (TAF) is a non-for profit organization dedicated to bringing films from, and about the Arab world, to Toronto audiences. TAF began because of a need to fill a void that exists in film programming in Toronto, specifically a lack of films from the Arab regions and a desire to reinstate a tradition of going out of watch films that has been lost.
Through our first initiative, Layali El Cinema, we programme year-round film screenings in Toronto. Through Mahrajan, our annual festival, we showcase Arab films from around the world. We also recognize the need to encourage interconnectedness between Arab filmmakers in Toronto and foster filmmakers, which we endeavour to do through the Shabaka initiative, where we support emerging talents through hosting networking events and running filmmaking workshops throughout the year.
