ABOUT SEATTLE ARAB FILM FESTIVAL:

Featuring the work of visionary emerging and established Arab filmmakers, this years iteration of the Seattle Arab Film Festival includes a wide variety of remarkable short and feature films. Films are grouped into four themes: In the Diaspora, Youth in Focus, Family and Culture, and Strong Female Lead. Each theme includes films that are at once startling and generous, passionate and empathetic, electrifying and familiar. Through the eyes of masterful filmmakers, audiences will encounter a diversity of Arab stories, circumstances, histories, visions, and voices.


ABOUT THIS FILM PROGRAM:

Exploring Arab culture and family through humor, levity, and grief, this series seeks to reinforce the diversity and vibrance of Arab experiences around the world. Through the lens of relationships, these films illuminate the forces that unite and divide families, communities, and humanity as a whole.
