The Arab Film and Media Institute (AFMI) is the first organization of its kind outside the Arab world, a unique ecosystem to find, nurture, connect, and develop Arab film and media projects. It was rebranded from the Arab Film Festival in 2017 to fulfill its broader mandate to empower local Arab talent to tell their communities’ stories in their own voices through workshops, development and opportunities to screen their work. Through film, education, mentorship, and new media, AFMI’s mission is to change pervasive worldwide anti-Arab narratives.
