Year of the Arabian Peninsula Film Festival


KENNESAW, Ga. (Aug 1, 2016) — This February, the Division of Global Affairs invites all members of the Kennesaw State University community to learn about the rich culture of the Arabian Peninsula through its films.

The Year of Arabian Peninsula Film Festival will run from February 9th through 13th, 2015, with screenings held in different locations around campus. Each film explores a different facet of life in the region. For example, 20 Years in the Middle East illustrates how the fall of Saddam Hussein affected the culture of Middle Eastern young people, while A New Day in Old Sana’a provides viewers with a whimsical look at love, marriage, and tradition.

Each screening will also feature a guest speaker following the film. These brief discussions will help viewers better understand what the films say about Arabian culture.

The Year of Arabian Peninsula Film Festival is the perfect opportunity to learn about global culture while experiencing world-class cinema.
