Attention Arab-movie buffs: the 7th Arab Film Festival kicks off in Amman tonight and you’re all invited to attend.

From August 20 to August 26, the Royal Film Commission invites you to indulge in the best movies Arabic cinema has to offer.

Contrary to last year’s event, only six films will be screened this week.

The festival will open (8pm local time) with emerging Egyptian filmmaker Sherif El Bendary’s film “Ali, The Goat and Ibrahim,” and close with Saudi filmmaker Mahmoud Sabbagh’s “Barakah Meets Barakah.”

Admission is free, so make sure you get there early to secure a front row seat!
