Taking place between the 24th - 30th of April 2024, this year's edition of ALFILM - Arab Film Festival Berlin marks its 15th anniversary.

Featuring a wide selection of over 45 feature films, documentaries, and short films, the festival promises its audience a cinematic experience of artistic merit and relevance to timely issues.

The ALFILM Selection emphasizes the diversity of the contemporary landscape of Arab cinema with film productions from the last two years. A special segment titled Persona non grata focuses on the representation of individual destinies prone to multifaceted dynamics of marginalization, stigmatization, and exclusion. The films in this segment explore the racial, gendered and socio-economic structures that nourish stigma and marginalization on the one hand, while, on the other hand, featuring individual attempts to resist, navigate through boundaries and reclaim one's own narratives.

This year's ALFILM Spotlight titled Here is Elsewhere: Palestine in Arab Cinema and Beyond engages with the question of Palestine as a cause of regional and global repercussions, not solely tied to territorial sovereignty. The film program explores the varied ways in which the longings and struggles of the Palestinian people unfold through compassionate encounters, solidarity accounts, and journeys of self-exploration, featuring a diverse selection of Arab and international film productions.

Master Classes, Panel Discussions, and Film Talks will round up this year's edition, as well as special events and live performances within the 15 Years ALFILM - 15 Years Arab Cinema in Berlin Program.
