The London MENA Film Festival (LMFF) aims to be the go to place for Middle Eastern and North African cinema in London. It has three main objectives: to reach audiences who might not otherwise get the opportunity to see this cinema, thus encouraging cross-cultural dialogue and understanding, to give film-makers from the region and its diaspora a much needed platform to showcase their talents, and to connect the diaspora not only to people in the MENA region but also to each other – creating a culture of inclusivity and avoiding one of difference.
For its 2012 edition, the London MENA festival launches a call for entries.
Who can apply?
LMFF will also be holding screenings throughout the year as part of our wider programme of events – so if you have a film that was completed before the said date (January 1, 2009) – the LMFF Team would still be very happy to hear from you!
