Franco-Arab RDV

The Franco-Arab Film Festival has proven to be a cultural landmark for over 25 years.  It offered to the Jordanian public a selection of French movies and recent films co-produced between France and the Arab World. Some 3,000 viewers used to attend it annually.

In 2020, the Amman International Film Festival – Awal Film (AIFF) integrated the Franco-Arab Film Festival under the title of Franco-Arab Rendez-Vous. This non-competitive section enriches the selection of the AIFF with films taping into both the Arabic and French cultures, reaching out to a larger public.

In addition, The French Institut organises the short film competition where young Jordanian talesnts participate with their short films. Winners of this competition participate in the Franco-Arab Film Festival that is organised since over tne years, in the Frency city: Nisy-le-Sec. Similarly, the Franco-Arab Rendez-Vous showcases  the four short films that have won the annual Franco-Arab Short Film Competition in Noisy-le-Sec.
