Festivals & Series
Presented in partnership with the Shubbak Festival and running from 3 to 7 July at Ciné Lumière and from 1 to 17 July across partner venues in London and online, the SAFAR Film Festival is the only festival in the UK dedicated to cinema from the Arab world. Founded in 2012 and run by The Arab British Centre, it offers a unique space for audiences to connect with, explore, and celebrate the diversity of Arab cinema, past, present, and future.
The 2021 edition of SAFAR is curated by Rabih El-Khoury around the theme of Generational Encounters in Arab Cinema, showcasing contemporary and classic films with emergent youth, familial disparities and societal tensions at their centre.
