Arab Film Festival Luleå 2021

Welcome to Arab Film Fest Luleå 2021!

Arab Film Fest Luleå is finally back! This year’s edition will take place between the 6th and the 7th of October at the cinema Royal in Luleå. The programme consists of a handpicked selection of feature, documentary and short films, as well as school screenings, a seminar, encounters with international guests and a festive inauguration mingle! All films screened will have Arabic dialogue and either English or Swedish subtitles.

Arab cinema is incredibly rich and versatile. The aim of Arab Film Fest Luleå is to provide a platform for contemporary Arab quality cinema in the Norrbotten region, as well as a space for new encounters and fresh perspectives. We believe in the power of cinema to convey both universal and the particular aspects of the human experience.

Arab Film Fest Luleå is organised by Malmö Arab Film Festival. MAFF was founded in 2011, and has since developed into the largest and the leading film festival focusing on Arab cinema in the Western world.

Arab Film Fest Luleå  is carried out with the generous support of Luleå kommun, Region Norrbotten och Svenska Filminstitutet.

In collaboration with Folkets Bio Luleå Royal, ABF, Syriska Föreningen i Norrbotten, Kompis Sverige, Folkets Bio och ACIS.
