MAFF 2021

11th Malmö Arab Film Festival ِApril 6-11

Malmö Arab Film Festival celebrated its eleventh year as the Corona pandemic continues , which unfortunately forced all events that attract big crowds to alter the strategy they adopted for years. This also applies to Malmo Arab Film Festival for its eleventh year for that, who had to convert all activities to digital, which deprived us of many of the usual activities. But we tried to preserve the spirit of the festival by holding cinematic screening within the laws that allowed eight person per screening in the Panora Cinema. We’ve also arranged for the broadcasting of all the festival events, market, and forum on social media to expending more views.

MAFF is the only festival in the Scandinavian region that has been presenting and focusing on Arab Cinema and culture since 2011. Not only this but, the festival is referred to as ”Malmö” which means we’ve become part of our beloved town and we’ve contributed to putting it on the Arab art and cinema map, Malmö also contributed to deploying Arab cinema. The establishment of MAFF forum helped to strengthen the rank of the festival internationally and this facilitated perceptible cooperation between the Scandinavian and Arab regions especially in distribution and production fields.
