Arab women filmmakers – a panel chat about contemporary Arab film

Posted 10 May 2023 by Abla Kan in

We chat to a panel of producers, actors and directors about the current film scene in the Arab world, what is means to be an “Arab film”, what the sources of funding tend to be, the themes and genres that appeal most internationally, the intricacies of subtitling and other topics our audience asked about. The event was held as a launch night for the Arab women filmmakers season at the cinema and involved producer and curator Elhum Shakerifar, actress and programmer Sarah Agha and filmmaker Soudade Kaadan.
