Get excited for the 10th edition of Mizna’s Arab Film Festival! With incredible films you can’t see anywhere else, visiting filmmakers, and local films, this year’s festival will not disappoint. Films from Syria, Palestine, Morocco, Egypt, and much, much more.
We are happy to partner with Mizna again this year and screen our Iraqi Voices Short Films on Sunday, November 8th at the St. Anthony Main Theatre at 11:00 a.m. Join us afterwards for a discussion with our talented filmmakers.
IARP presents authentic Iraqi and American voices to counter negative stereotypes, build mutual understanding and respect, and provide a platform for dialogue. Iraqi Voices is an ongoing collaborative mentorship program that gives Iraqis in Minnesota support and training to transform their stories into high-quality documentary video shorts. The films in this program are written and directed by Iraqi-American participants and photographed and edited by Nathan Fisher. Produced by the Iraqi and American Reconciliation Project and Northern Monday Films, this activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
