AANM’s Arab Film Festival

AANM proudly hosts the annual Arab Film Festival (AFF) featuring the best of critically acclaimed and award-winning Arab American and Arab world films, many of which are unlikely to reach traditional American commercial theaters and often make their regional or national debut at AFF. This year, the festival will take place virtually and in-person, May 17-21, 2023! 

AFF showcases Arab and Arab American films for fans of Arabic-language movies and adventurous art-film lovers seeking new perspectives and outside-the-box thinking. We pride ourselves on creating a safe space, a platform for Arab and Arab American films and filmmakers and to give a voice to Arab and Arab American artists and their stories. View the full film lineup here.

Please note: Festival Passes are only offered for in-person screenings due to a larger film selection being available in-person. All virtual screenings are individually ticketed and can be purchased by selecting the film of your choice on the Film Guide.
