Arab Women Film Days 2021

The first embryo of what was to become the Arab Women Film Days was held in 2015, as a way of marking International Women’s Day. The initiative was very well received, and eventually developed into a mini-festival in its own right. Arab Women Film Days was created to give visibility to the richness and diversity of films with and by Arab women, and to empower women in an industry that is still largely male-dominated. The festival seeks to highlight film projects with solid female representation in all parts of the production, both behind and in front of the camera.

The upcoming edition of Arab Women Film Days will take place in Malmö (October 1-2) and Helsingborg (2-4) in parallel.
