BBC Arabic will host its second annual festival bringing films and documentaries from the Arab world to audiences in London after last year’s “successful” event.
The BBC Arabic Festival is accepting entries (deadline: 13 May 2015) in four categories; short films, short documentaries, feature documentaries, reportage). This year’s theme, Rulers and Ruled: Power in a Changing Arab World, will explore the struggles for power and control that continue to shake the region. Film and documentary makers, journalists and the general public who are exploring key issues around the Arab world are welcome to submit their work. Entry details are available on the website, BBCArabic.com/festival
The BBC Arabic Festival will take place in the autumn of 2015 in the iconic Radio Theatre, BBC New Broadcasting House, Central London. Last year’s festival brought to London 23 professional and first-time filmmakers from Egypt, Syria, Palestine, Jordan, Switzerland, France, Italy, Saudi Arabia and elsewhere.
