What is the IAFFZ?

International Arab Film Festival Zurich (IAFFZ) is a non-profit, politically and religiously independent association based in Zurich. The association was founded in 2008 with the aim to bring closer the Arab cinema and Arab culture to a Swiss audience. The festival aims to contribute to an intercultural dialogue in order to improve a greater understanding of different cultures and to offer to an interested public the opportunity to deal with the diversity of the Arab world.


The association organizes in cooperation with the Filmpodium of the city of Zurich the Arab Film Festival Zurich, which was first held in 2012 and since then takes place every two years. The festival team, consisting of the festival management, the Board of Directors, numerous helpers and volunteers are all working for free.
