San Diego Arab Film Festival


June 5
June 19

The San Diego Arab Film Festival is back for 2021 with a hybrid festival: live, in-person feature film showings at the Museum of Photographic Arts combined with an online offering of short films.  Both the in-person and on-line  presentations begin on June 5.

The Festival program showcases 6 feature films and 15 short films from across the Arab World.  The Festival is proud to present the first film from Sudan ever submitted to the Oscars, Oscar submitted films from Morocco and Lebanon, as well as a range of films from and about Palestine, Egypt, UAE, Qatar Iraq, France, USA, and UK that have been well received at international festivals around the world.

In-person screenings will follow the COVID protocols in place at the time, but we expect that those protocols will include wearing masks and limiting attendance to 50% of theater capacity.
