Arabian Sights

For its 24th edition, the Arabian Sights Festival will showcase some of the most remarkable cinematographic works of the year from the Arab world. For the last two decades, Arabian Sights has featured some of the most engaging films of Arabian cinema. Inaugurated in 1996 with the Washington DC International Film Festival as its parent organization, Arabian Sights remains one of the oldest festivals of its kind in the US.

This year, the Arabian Sights Festival will present three French productions: Arab Blues by Manele Labidi, Escape from Raqqa by Emmanuel Hamon, and New Biz in the Hood by Mohamed Hamidi as well as several other French co-productions.
