The mission of the Arab Film Festival (AFF) is to enhance public understanding of Arab culture and to provide alternative representations of Arabs that contradict the stereotypical images frequently encountered in the American mass media.
AFF annually showcases works by independent filmmakers that provide insightful and innovative perspectives on Arab culture, art, history and politics. This year's festival particularly welcomes Comedies, Animation, Children's Films, and Short Films.
Celebrating filmmakers from the Arab world and beyond, the Noor Awards will be presented on Opening Night at the Castro Theatre on October 16th. A jury composed of distinguished members of the film and academic communities select the winning film and Arab Film Festival will award a cash prize to the director in four categories:
Best Long Fiction ($2000),
Best Long Non-Fiction ($2000),
Best Short Fiction ($500),
Best Short Non-Fiction ($500).
The Arab Film Festival's Board of Directors will also present a Lifetime achievement award honoring the work of an annuanlly chosen director who has inspired audiences with their cinematic excellence.
