AAI California Field Organizer Shadi Matar will be hosting a Yalla Vote booth at the Arab Film Festival in Los Angeles on October 22 from 5pm-9pm. He’ll also be discussing #YallaVote so come out to the Harmony Gold Theater to learn about how you can get involved ahead of Election Day. 

The Arab Film Festival is the largest independent annual showcase of Arab films and filmmakers in the country. The festival, which has an international standing, is considered one of the most important Arab film festivals outside the Arab world. It strives to present the best contemporary films that provide insight into the beauty, complexity and diversity of the Arab world alongside realistic perspectives on Arab people, culture, art, history, and politics. The festival will feature films such as “After Spring,” “Nasser,” and “Degrade.”
