Tunisian film 'Regarde-moi' by Najib Belkadhi will be screened at the opening of Malmö Arab Film Festival (MAFF) in its festival’s 9th edition, taking place in the Swedish city of Malmo from 4 to 8 October.

The screening will be among a special program to celebrate Tunisia after it was recently selected by the festival to be the guest of honor.

"It’s easy to recognize the breakthrough happening in contemporary Tunisian cinema, whose presence became a normal thing in all major festivals," stated the founder and president of the Malmö Festival, Mouhamad Keblawi through the festival's official website.

"Honouring this aspiring industry was a logical choice for MAFF, which has been trying since its beginning to shed light on all that is distinctive in Arab cinema”.

In collaboration with the Tunisian National Center of Cinema and Image (CNCI), the program will showcase a range of cinematic and cultural activities that shed light on the past, present, and future of Tunisian cinema.

Since its founding in 2011, MAFF, quickly became the largest and most famous Arab film festival in Europe, and aims to build bridges between cultures based on film as a universal visual language, capable of imitating the diversity of human dimension.
