Tickets on Sale for Cape Cod Festival of Arab and Middle Eastern Cinema

HYANNIS –The Cape Cod Festival of Arab & Middle Eastern Cinema has released its full four-day schedule of screenings and events to take place May 4–7.

Tickets are now on sale and full information is available online at CapeCodFilmSociety.com.

The Cape Cod Festival of Arab & Middle Eastern Cinema was founded in 2012 by Rebecca M. Alvin, an independent filmmaker, teacher and writer who lives in Brewster.

The biennial festival celebrates the cinema of the Arab World and the Middle East, focusing on works made by filmmakers of Arab and/or Middle Eastern descent living around the world, with the goal of sharing films most Americans are unable to access and fostering cross cultural understanding by accentuating the ability of the cinema to generate empathy and dialogue.

The festival receives support from the Chatham Cultural Council, the Provincetown Cultural Council, and the Wellfleet Cultural Council.

Rebecca Alvin is an independent filmmaker and Associate Teaching Professor at The New School in New York City.

She is also a writer and editor of Provincetown Magazine. The festival is one of several film programs she has offered to the Cape community under the umbrella of the Cape Cod Film Society program, which she founded in 2002.

The Festival is produced with support from the Chatham Cultural Council, Provincetown Cultural Council, and Wellfleet Cultural Council.

Additional sponsors and support, as well as volunteers, are still being sought for this year’s events.
