Calling all cinema-lovers! Between the 4th and the 14th of November, the Filmoteca de Catalunya will host the 15th edition of the Arab and Mediterranean Film Festival of Catalonia - a space dedicated to the projection and promotion of Arab cinema in Catalonia.
This film festival is an independent cultural project that was created in 2007 with a clear objective: to generate social impact. It was also born with the intention of breaking the stereotypes about what we call the “Arab World” - a Western view of the East that hides and simplifies, without too much consideration, richer, more diverse and complex realities than we think.
Promoting cultural diversity through cinema, its programme is made up of films directed or produced by filmmakers from Arab countries. This year’s films will include 200 Metres (Palestine), Electric Pastoral Care (Morocco), A Summer at the Goulette (Tunisia), and Trapped (Egypt).
