The Arab British Centre established the SAFAR Film Festival in 2012 to celebrate the achievements of Arab cinema and provide audiences the opportunity to access films rarely seen in the UK. The past two editions of the festival received acclaim from industry experts as well as the general public. We are really proud that The Arab British Centre was named winner of the prestigious UNESCO-Sharjah Prize for Arab Culture 2012 for SAFAR, and the centre’s efforts to develop, disseminate and promote Arab culture in Britain!
This year the festival will return to the ICA from the 14 – 18 September with an ambitious line up curated by Rasha Salti. The selection celebrates the breadth of work from across the Arab world with films from Algeria, Egypt, Kuwait, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, Syria and Tunisia.
