Arab Film Festival Australia

17 August 2017 - 3 September 2017

The Arab Film Festival Australia (AFFA) proudly presents its 13th edition. AFFA’s rising success is proof positive that Arab filmmakers are producing a growing body of work that successfully explores Arab contemporary cultures.

The flourishing Arab film industry makes it possible for international communities to share the myriad stories and journeys experienced by Arabic-speaking people. Indeed, in the films presented by AFFA, Arab filmmakers re-tell richly resonant stories, stories that address current challenges, document our time in history and give voice to the many who are often silenced or never heard.
