Arab Cinema Week 2023

10/05/2023 To 10/14/2023

What ties an individual to a particular society? How do norms, customs and traditions affect one’s upbringing, identity and relationships? And does growing up in a particular environment necessarily mean belonging to it?  All of these questions are reflected in this second volume of Arab Cinema Week, which Cinema Akil is presenting under the theme of Human Bonds. 

After its inaugural edition in 2022 that resulted in sold out screenings, Cinema Akil once again fervently carves out a special place for Arab independent Cinema in its yearly programming, dedicating a full week to present it in its various shapes and forms.


Host your event with the highest cinematic experience, comfy sofas, incredible surround sound and delicious food from our chai diner.
