Cinemayaat, the Arab Film Festival (AFF) is celebrating its eighth year with screenings of approximately 25 independently produced feature films, documentaries and shorts. In contrast to mass media’s frequently negative portrayal of Arab culture, The Arab Film Festival showcases Arab culture through Arab eyes. It also seeks to find a shared experience through artistic expression – history and humanity, love and life - in a time when mass media focuses solely on the distance between American and Arab culture.
