The 6th Arabic and Mediterranean Film Festival of Catalonia
8-11 November 2012
The Arabic and Mediterranean Film Festival of Catalonia was born in 2006 as an independent cultural project with a clear social objective. It was established through the joint efforts of two organizations, the CineBaix (www.cinebaix.com) and Sodepau (www.sodepau.org) Associations, each contributing its own specific experience and history to make such an initiative possible.
Based on the conviction that movies are a tool for knowing and understanding the world we live in, The Arabic and Mediterranean Film Festival of Catalonia wishes to contribute in: giving exposure and promoting Arabic and Mediterranean cinema in Catalonia; the creation of a meeting space for professionals from the Arab, Catalan and Spanish movie industries for sharing and exchanging; awareness building on opportunities to facilitate coexistence among Mediterranean people through culture and artistic expression, all the while contributing in changing the image and stereotypes on the Arab World and the Mediterranean region. This Festival is not competition-based.
The main new feature of the Arabic and Mediterranean Film Festival in its sixth edition is that will bring the dissemination of Arab and Mediterranean cinema to a broader and more diverse public with a new location in the Cinémathèque de Catalunya (Barcelona)
