The 13th Arab Film Festival (AFF) at Cinetopia is now accepting submissions from local, national and international filmmakers for this year’s program.

Running May 31 to June 10, 2018, AFF includes films from the Arab World and Arab America in the genres of drama, comedy and documentary, in both short-form and feature lengths. The films will be presented at various locations, including at the Arab Museum. Please double check by clicking here.

To submit, go to the AFF submission page HERE.

The early deadline for submissions is Feb. 9, late submissions will be accepted until Feb. 23.

This year’s focus, engaging marginalized voices through film, is inspired by the launch of AANM’s community film project funded by a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, as part of its Knight Arts Challenge.
