Mizna’s Arab Film Festival

Still from About Some Meaningless Events (dir. Mostafa Derkaoui, 1974) Mizna’s Arab Film Festival is set to return Sept. 29 through Oct. 3. The festival will be held in a hybrid format at Trylon Cinema with remote screenings available across the country. 
Established in 2003, Mizna’s Twin Cities Arab Film Festival features local debuts of independent narrative, documentary, and experimental features and short films from more than 15 Arabic-speaking countries and their diasporas. The festival provides SWANA (Southwest Asian/North African) filmmakers support and exposure, builds the local SWANA community, and enables Minnesota audiences to enjoy the varied ways that SWANA artists represent themselves and their world through film.
