Malmö Arab Film Festival the 5th
October 2-6, 2015
2015 meant the fifth year of the festival – and the first anniversary was celebrated largely! Malmo Arab Film Festival 2015 took place from October 2 to 6, and gathered over 116 international guests and presented 127 feature films, short films and documentaries during the five intense days of the festival. The festival also organized a film critics conference with critics from the Arab world and the Nordic countries called Critics Without Borders.
In connection with the 2015 fifth edition of Malmo Arab Film Festival launched a new initiative, MAFF Market Forum (MMF), the world’s first platform for cooperation between Arab and Nordic film industry. MMF took place October 3 to 5. MMF was carried out with great success, with a total of 328 accredited participants from 34 countries!
The market was created to be a unique platform to create a melting point of the Arab and Scandinavian film industries, with particular focus on highlighting and further strengthen the region of Southern Sweden as centre for film.
This year the festival increased its number of visitors from other parts of Sweden, the Nordic region and the world – this extensive part due to the establishment of MAFF Market Forum but also for greater visibility across Malmö as well as all over Sweden!
