The Arab Film and Media Institute (AFMI) is a non profit organization founded by the team behind the largest and oldest Arab Film Festival in North America.
Our work is organized around 4 pillars:
The annual ARAB FILM FESTIVAL which now includes year-round programs, screenings, and film-related events for the public
AFMI EDUCATION provides schools with a curated series of Arab films and related curriculum to nurture dialogue and challenge regional stereotypes.
AFMI CREATORS is our newest pillar designed to connect Arab American filmmakers with each other, resources, mentorship, and opportunities
AFMI INDUSTRY connects emerging Arab American filmmakers with the film industry at large through partnerships, showcases, and industry events
