FestivalEncounter and dialogue
Since 2012, an exciting festival for contemporary Arab cinema has been taking place every two years and has established itself as a permanent fixture in the Swiss cultural landscape. The festival program intends to point out various aspects of Arab culture in a nuanced and complex manner and to provide insights into Arab culture, history, religion and society.
The Arab Film Festival Zurich AFFZ makes an important contribution to inter-cultural dialogue and a greater understanding of different cultures. It gives an interested audience the opportunity to engage with the diversity of the Arab world.
