Independent Arab cinema is alive! Last year, eleven curators from the Arab world accepted an invitation by the Goethe Institute in Cairo to compile short film programmes. During the Arabshorts.net Festival in Cairo in December 2009 more than 50 short-feature, documentary, animated, and experimental films were screened, reflecting the rich and dynamic cinematic culture of the Arab world.

Marcel Schwierin, Project Director of Arabshorts 2009, will discuss current developments in Arab cinema and present highlights from the project.

Organisers: Goethe Institute in Cairo, Munich Adult Education Centre [Münchner Volkshochschule] and the Munich Museum of Film
