This is the sixth edition of the Dublin Arabic Film Festival. Each year it has developed incrementally with a wide array of quality movies from all parts of the Arab world. This year will be no different.
We serve a unique segment among the various film festivals in Ireland each year by focusing exclusively on high-quality movies from or about the Arab world. Our goal is to promote awareness of all aspects of the culture, history and life experience of the people who live there in all their variety and complexity. We believe that we have done well so far.
The success of the Festival could not be maintained without the continuing and generous support of our two main sponsors - Dubai Duty Free and the Arab-Irish Chamber of Commerce. We are very grateful to them both for their solid commitment over the past six years without which there might be no festival at all.
Our hope is to expand the programme to include additional activities and additional locations in the coming years and we invite new sponsorship to help in achieving this. Festival Director, Zhara Moufid, will welcome enquiries from all interested parties. The more we have, the more we can do!
Enjoy the Festival 2019
