Arabic Film Festival 2017: The Power of Film in Breaking Down Social Barriers

A group of creative minds will next week be at the forefront of dispelling some of the stigma surrounding Australia’s Arabic community.

This year’s edition of the Australian Arab Film Festival will bring the best films and filmmakers from the region to Australian viewers. Nic spoke to festival co-director Mouna Zaylah to discuss the growing role the festival plays in promoting Arabic culture in Australia. The Sydney leg of the 2017 Arab Film Festival runs from 17-20 August at Riverside Theatres at Parramatta. For more info and tickets visit
