Arab Film Festival

05.10.2018 to 09.10.2018

Malmö Arab Film Festival (MAFF) is an intercultural platform for diversity and tolerance. The festival is widely regarded as one of the most influential and largest festival with an Arabic cinema focus and offers a platform for collaboration between the Nordic and Arab film industries. MAFF is the largest festival with an Arabic cinema focus outside the Arab world.

The festival was initiated through a common need in Malmo and Sweden – a grassroots striving for an Arabic cultural platform with the film as the binding element. MAFF is an intercultural meeting place for discourse and a bridge-building catalyst between people and cultures. The festival was initiated and founded in 2011 by festival’s general manager and artistic director Mouhamad Keblawi.
