9-10 March 2019

The first edition of Arab Women Film Festival that MAFF organized was in March of 2013 as a way of marking the International Women’s day. Working towards equality and lifting voices of those who sometimes are not heard is an important part of MAFFs vision. The Arab Women Film Festival was created as a platform for the Arab women to have an opportunity to show and share their diversity, as well as lifting women in an industry that is highly male-dominated. The focus was on choosing a female-dominated project, off and on screen. The event was straight away highly appreciated and has since evolved into a two-day festival of its own. This year the festival was held in two cities, namely Helsingborg.
