Sunday 22 - Thursday 26 April
The BBC Arabic Festival screens bold and diverse short films and documentaries about the social and political changes taking place in the Arab world today. Now in our fourth year, we have a new focus on digital journalism to explore the changing landscape of our media. Our unique and timely programme includes special talks and exclusive presentations by award-winning journalists and filmmakers as well as music and comedy from the Arab world.
The festival takes place at the iconic art-deco BBC Radio Theatre in central London, between Friday 20 April and Thursday 26 April 2018.
Please take a look at our 17 screenings and events that make up the BBC Arabic Festival week. Tickets are free and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Visit the individual listings for more details about each one.
You can apply for tickets to as many sessions as you like.
Admission to these screenings and events is on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note that as not everyone who asks for tickets uses them, to make sure we have a full house we send out more tickets than there are places. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people so please arrive early.
