Fayetteville Film Fest to present ‘A Night of Middle Eastern Film’ March 29


Fayetteville Film Festival’s main event is still several months away, but festival organizers are planning an event this month for local film lovers to get their independent movie fix.

Organizers will host an evening of Middle Eastern Films on Wednesday, March 29 at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church.

The event will feature screenings of short films made by Middle Eastern filmmakers, including the short film, Lima, winner of an award in the animated short film category at the 2016 Fayetteville Film Fest.

All of the films will be screened in their native language, but will be subtitled in English. The movies will begin at 7 p.m.

Admission is free, but donations will be accepted for Canopy NWA, an organization that helps to support refugees resettling in the NWA area.

Fayetteville Film Festival’s main event is set for Sept. 13-17 in 2017 in downtown Fayetteville.
