Mizna will present the 14th Twin Cities Arab Film Festival September 26-29, 2019 at St. Anthony Main Theatre. Over its fourteen editions, our festival has created a necessary space in the Twin Cities for Arab and Muslim filmmakers to tell their stories in beautiful and innovative ways.
The Arab Film Fest takes place at the Film Society’s Screen 3 at St. Anthony Main, screening more than thirty contemporary films from Palestine, Egypt, Lebanon, Qatar, Syria, Jordan, and the United Arab Emirates, as well as those from local Arab filmmakers. For the fourth year, we will be awarding juried prizes for films in the categories of Best Narrative, Best Documentary, and Best Short, and will continue the Best Audience Award based on audience votes.
