The 12th edition of ALFILM running from the 21st till the 30th of April 2021 in Arsenal and City Kino Wedding and will bring again fresh cinema from the Arab world.

Dealing with a wide variety of themes like migration, gender roles, or the question of memory, the contemporary fiction and documentary films of the OFFICIAL SELECTION paint a vivid and personal picture of a changing region.

The side program SPOTLIGHT will take a deeper look into fiction films that revisit mainstream genres through an author’s perspective. In these highly aesthetic films, the conventions of genres are but an excuse to deal with taboo political and social questions.

Supported by the multi-sector funding for festivals and series (4 years) of the Senate Department for Culture and Europe

ALFILM’s programme will be released here mid-March.

You can find the programmes of the former editions of ALFILM in our online Archives.
