Returning to Circle Cinema Thu 11/9-Sun 11/12, curated by Mizna and supported by the Tulsa Artist Fellowship.
Renowned film and lit organization Mizna brings its Arab Film Fest Tulsa back for a third year in collaboration with Circle Cinema and Tulsa Artist Fellowship, presenting contemporary Arab and SWANA (Southwest Asian and North African) directors and showcasing a deeply underrepresented, diverse, and brilliant world of film.
"This festival isn't just a celebration of the wealth of current indie Arab film. It's also in a way a small celebration of Tulsa's ever-growing cultural diversity and curiosity, where we have the institutions and audiences to have all kinds of experimental projects like Arab Film Fest Tulsa. I'm excited to be a part of this juncture and to be able to bring Mizna's work to our community," said Moheb Soliman, festival organizer, Tulsa Artist Fellow and interdisciplinary poet.
Chuck Foxen , Circle Cinema Deputy Director & Programmer, further states: “Arab Film Fest Tulsa is the perfect opportunity for the city to share in these culturally rich and vibrant works from Arab filmmakers. Movies have the power to bring communities together, and Moheb, Mizna, and Tulsa Artist Fellowship are the ideal partners to make this happen. We hope Tulsans from all walks of life will join us for an enriching festival.”
