Mission / description ALFILM – Arab Film Festival Berlin – was initiated to provide a platform for Arabic filmmakers in Germany. A platform where stereotypes are confronted with authentic stories and images. Along with films from well known film-producing countries ALFILM aims to discover emerging filmmakers and to access new narratives as well as interrelations and challenges. Moreover, ALFILM provides filmmakers, producers, experts, and distributors with a forum for artistic exchange, which results in further cooperation and development of new projects.

The ALFILM Festival is organised by the non-profit association "Friends of the Arab Cinematheque", Berlin in cooperation with its various partners and supporters.

The external look of the Alfilm Festival is professional and well organized, surprising by the small number of staff members they have. The people behind the festival are very ambitious and you can see and feel their passion to bring Arab culture into the world. The audience is a little bit older than usual, but we can work together to change that! Jana Around 9 years ago

AlFilm is a highly professional outfit, complete with a passionate creative team and experienced programmers rotating from year to year, building a rich and relevant film program. There are many Arabic film festivals around the world and for a festival only in it's fourth edition, AlFilm Berlin is certainly a leader in terms of professionalism in operations. I look forward to it growing into a competition festival some day very soon. Full review here: Claire Around 9 years ago
