Outside-The-Box Short Films

  • Arab American National Museum 13624 Michigan Ave. Dearborn United States (map)

Surprise! For those of you desperately waiting to know what the secret screening will be, your wait is over! Due to the popular demand on short films from our audiences and in keeping with the coincidental theme of #shortfilmSaturday, the Arab Film Festival brings together outside-the-box short films, that take us into the more experimental side of film and discuss important topics for many Arab and Arab Americans, including gender roles, home, love and war.

Immediately following the screening, we are honored to be joined in person by director Maha Al-Saati (Hair) for an intimate talkback. This screening is FREE and open to the public.
