Festival Dates 2017

Between April 11 and 23 the 9th edition of Festival Cinéma Arabe will take place in seven theatres in the Netherlands: Amsterdam (Rialto, De Balie and Podium Mozaïek), Rotterdam (LantarenVenster), Den Bosch (Verkadefabriek), Den Haag (Filmhuis Den Haag) and Maastricht (Lumière Cinema).

The existence of Festival Cinéma Arabe is in danger. In 2016, the Amsterdam Fund for Arts has decided that the festival is no longer “urgent”. The artistic contribution of the festival in the public debate on radicalisation and islamophobia is no longer seen as an added value for society. This resulted in the multi-annual funding being cut off. This can not be the end! That’s why we decided to appeal to your voice: sign our petition and help us save the festival!
