ARAB FILM FEST LULEÅ 2018
maj 2018 Biograf Royal
Continuing the tour to Luleå brought us to surprisingly warmer weather. Again we were met by happy festival goers and the town councillor Lenita Ericson gave a beautiful speech welcoming us. Here we also enjoyed a local musicians tunes and food from a local restaurant before watching the opening film “Nawara”. Our special guests during the festival were the producers Widad Shafakoj and Mariakenzi Lahlou and both took part in seperate Q&As the following day. The second day started with two movies exclusive for invited school classes. Following that we had the short films, documentaries, seminair and Q&As. The evening was ended with a mingel, with more music, food and features!
Folkets Bio Royal is a cozy and classic space, this festival had an intimate and warm feeling. We really enjoyed our time here and think that the festival was a success!
