Welcome to the Arab Film and Media Institute
AFMI stands for Arab Film and Media Institute. We founded the Arab Film and Media Institute to fight all the bigotry and hate with powerful art and storytelling that fosters empathy and understanding of our common humanity, and to support Arab talent in the United States.
It is a new organization founded by the team behind the largest and oldest Arab Film Festival in North America. AFMI aims to be a complete ecosystem to find, nurture, and showcase Arab talent in the United States. Starting with organizing school screenings, and growing into offering filmmaker services and original programming, AFMI is the place for Arab cinema and its fans, and the home of the Arab Film Festival.
Next up in our annual series covering Arab films at major film festivals is the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival. The Tribeca Film Festival will take place from April 24th to May 5th in New York City. This festival began a mere 17 years ago in 2002 and despite its youth it has become recognized as a major festival for independent filmmakers in all genres. We took at look at the lineup to see what Arab films will grace the screen this year. FEATURE FILMS Still from Initials SG
