Arab Film Festival

Festival for the Schools

The Arab Film Festival is committed to bringing original, unexpected, and underrepresented stories and voices from the Arab World into California schools in order to enhance the classroom experience.

The Festival for the Schools is a year-round series of special, free events for students and educators. It presents windows on the world that move students beyond the practice of learning about the Arab World. Instead, the featured films connect students to characters and situations that they can relate to and that help them to begin to learn from within the Arab World through the eyes and ears of cutting-edge contemporary filmmakers.
