2017 San Diego Arab Film Festival Dates Set: October 20, 21, 28 & 29
The 2017 San Diego Arab Film Festival is taking shape! Now in its sixth year, the Festival is expanding to 10 screenings. The first 3 will be at the Museum of Photographic Arts on Friday, October 20, and Saturday, October 21. The remaining 7 will be at AMC Mission Valley 20 on Saturday, October 28, and Sunday, October 29.
This schedule is a big step for the Festival since it is based on increasing the number of screenings (and the number of films) from seven last year. 2017 will be the broadest offering of films in the Festival’s history. As usual, films will be a mix of narrative and documentary features and shorts.
Mark your calendars!
San Diego Arab Film Festival Gets Support From San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture
2016 marked the second year that the San Diego Arab Film Festival received support from the City of San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture. An application for funding in 2017 is underway. This recognition and support represents an important milestone for the Festival and for San Diego’s Arab Community: it shows that Arab culture is an important part of the fabric of San Diego! In addition, on-going support from the Arts and Culture Commission helps lay the groundwork for the Festival’s growth as a dynamic part of San Diego’s cultural life.
