The Arab Film Festival is designed for fans of Arabic-language movies and adventurous art-film lovers seeking new perspectives. This year’s selections – representing the nations of Lebanon, Iraq, Syria, Jordan, Palestine, Egypt, Tunisia and Qatar – were all acclaimed on the international festival circuit but are unlikely to reach big-screen U.S. viewers. While most titles are in Arabic, all films include English subtitles, making them accessible to all.
