DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) – State and U.S. film premieres are among the offerings during the 13th Arab Film Festival in southeastern Michigan.
The event returns to Cinetopia Film Festival May 31-June 10. It’s the fourth time the festival featuring films of the Arab World has linked with Cinetopia, which screens films in Ann Arbor, Dearborn and Detroit.
U.S. premieres include “A Certain Nasser” about Georges Nasser, a Lebanese cinema pioneer. It will be paired June 10 with the first Lebanese film screened at the Cannes Film Festival, Nasser’s 1957 film, “Where to?”
The short films program expands to two programs: The first, on June 8, focuses on “Everyday Heroes from the Arab World” and second, on June 9, is “Celebrating Arab Women Filmmakers.”
