The Toronto Arab Film is a non-for-profit collective dedicated to bringing films from, and about the Arab world, to Toronto audiences. TAF began because of a need to fill a void that exists in film programming in Toronto, specifically a lack of films from the Arab regions and a desire to reinstate a tradition of going out to watch films that has been lost. Through our first initiative, Layali El Cinema, we programme year-round film screenings in Toronto. As a collective we also recognize the need to encourage the interconnectedness between Arab filmmakers in Toronto and foster emerging filmmakers, which we endeavour to do through the Shabaka initiative. Through Shabaka, we hope to support emerging talents through hosting networking events and running filmmaking workshops throughout the year.
For the inaugural film screening, we are bringing the Egyptian hit film, HEPTA, THE LAST LECTURE. The screening will be followed by a reception where filmmakers and film lovers can connect and collaborate.
