Since 2009, the non-profit association makan – Center for Arab Film, Arts and Culture has been organising the Arab film festival, and has established itself firmly into Berlin’s cultural landscape, also becoming one of the most important centres for Arabic culture in Europe.


The independent association have brought, since 2004, numerous contemporary and classical Arabic films to Berlin and have given Arab filmmakers the opportunity to screen and discuss their work with the Berliner audience as well as participate in debates and panels. This would not have been possible without the efforts and devotion of our team of volunteers.


In order to be able to bring more Arabic culture to Berlin, we need your help.


Any tax-deductible donation makes a contribution to the development and preservation of the only Arab film festival in Germany.
