The Universe. Some scratches of Beryllium. Diving. The Navel of the Galaxies. Maybe god. Maybe the void. Maybe you. Maybe it's just cryptical

Working amidst the rumbling

Yes, we are alive.
Yes, we are working.
Yes, our festival will take place as scheduled. (September 16-23)
The fourth edition of Ayam Beirut Al Cinema'iya (Beirut Cinema Days) will be the first post-war film festival to be held in Lebanon.
The organizers decided to make this even happen in order to take a stand and show the world that Lebanon is not only about resistance, Hizbullah and reconstruction, but Lebanon is continuing to persist, exist and overcome the crucial events that have occurred over the past month.
With a shortened selection (utmost 30 films over the 110+ that were originally intended to participate in this bi-annual event), our weeklong festival will program short films, features and documentaries as well as a special section of videos and footages of the actual July War on Lebanon.
Many filmmakers are coming to Lebanon to mainly encourage this festival which is taking place within the chaotic and uncertain conditions that are reigning over the country.
So if you feel like coming, be our guest!
