San Diego Arab Film Festival Announces New Schedule

After 6 years of screening in the Fall, the San Diego Arab Film Festival is changing its schedule to the Spring.  SDAFF will mark this change with a special screening of Annemarie Jacir’s acclaimed drama Wajib at the Museum of Photographic Arts on September 22.  More information about this special screening will be forthcoming.

Then, SDAFF will resume it’s full schedule of screenings with its 2019 Festival in April.  As in 2017, the Festival will be hosting films at two venues.  The opening weekend will be April 5 and 6 at the Museum of Photographic Arts.  Then, on the weekend of April 13 and 14, the Festival will move to AMC Mission Valley 20 at Westfield Mission Valley Center.

Planning is underway for these two events.  To make sure that you are up to date as plans develop, follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
