Arab Film Series: Documentary Shorts

Our FREE screenings in Berkeley are back!  Join us to watch Documentary Shorts from the 21st Arab Film Festival.

Please join ARAB FILM AND MEDIA INSTITUTE (AFMI), BERKELEY CITY COLLEGE (BCC) and YALLA ARABI as we present the ARAB FILM SERIES. Catch some of the hottest films that have screened at the ARAB FILM FESTIVAL.

On April 26, watch a diverse assembly of short format documentary films that include spotlights on traditional Moroccan Sufi-inspired rock music and Amman’s underground heavy metal scene, to a portrait of Palestinian youth living under occupation. Of note in this program are 4 films from #SupportYemen’s documentary filmmaking workshop Comra (or “photographic dark room”) that supports Yemeni filmmakers in tandem with the British Council. Heartfelt, relevant, and inspiring: our 2017 doc shorts program has something for everyone.

Screenings are free and open to the public but MUST register online to guarantee your seat(s).

There is NO CHARGE to attend. Doors open at 6pm. Film starts promptly at 6:30pm.  Join us and spread the word!
