The 11th Arabic Film Festival plays in 3 SF Bay Area cities- SF, Berkeley, and San Jose – from Oct. 18th – 28th and for the first time will be featured in Los Angeles Oct. 31 – Nov. 4th. Artistic director Sonia El-Feki writes “Exposure and knowledge are our best allies against fundamentalism and the denial of free expression”. And as a commitment to diverse representation this year’s program features a majority of women-made films, which is certainly a rarity for film festivals anywhere.
