See thoughtfully curated films from local, national and international Arab and Arab-American filmmakers. Established in 2003, the Arab Film Fest has featured local debuts of independent narrative and documentary features and short films from more than fifteen countries. Over its 13 editions, our festival has created a necessary space in the Twin Cities for Arab and Muslim filmmakers to tell their stories in beautiful and innovative ways.
The Arab Film Fest takes place at the Film Society’s Screen 3 at St. Anthony Main, screening more than 30 contemporary films from Palestine, Egypt, Lebanon, Qatar, Syria, Jordan and the United Arab Emirates, as well as those from local Arab filmmakers. For the fourth year, we will be awarding juried prizes for films in the categories of Best Narrative, Best Documentary and Best Short, and will continue the Best Audience Award based on audience votes.

Frankenstein—Playing with Fire
Adapted by Minnesota playwright Barbara Field from Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (celebrating its 200th anniversary this year), this captivating retelling of the classic tale imagines a meeting between a dying Frankenstein and his creation in the Arctic Circle. As Frankenstein prepares to right his greatest wrong by confronting the Creature, scenes from their past are replayed and the line between good and evil is debated, revealing a powerful and agonizing question that interrogates the ethical limits of science and human imagination.

Little Women
In the midst of the Civil War, the four March sisters are set on a journey from adolescence to adulthood: a classic tale saturated with a contemporary air. The Jungle commissioned Kate Hamill, a playwright who’s been praised by The New York Times as “ingenious, saucy, & spunky,” to adapt this beloved and timely classic work and reunites her with Sarah Rasmussen (Sense & Sensibility at Guthrie Theater). “Little Women” will surprise, excite, and empower you.
