    NAAS | Network of Arab Alternative Screens

    NAAS is a network of non-governmental cinema screens in the Arabic-speaking region. It gathers initiatives that attempt through their programming, events, space, outreach, and operation to support a vibrant and sustainable cinema culture with the aim of developing audiences engaging with film.

    By organizing annual regional encounters, workshops, and initiatives for film circulation, NAAS aims to broaden the scope of films available to the Arab public and to encourage dialogue around cinema and its history with the hopes of tapping into the potential presented by the collective  experience of watching film in a public setting.

    The NAAS network currently counts 20 members and affiliates:

    • 12 cinemas, cine-clubs and cultural centers
    • 4 film distributors
    • 4 affiliates: screening halls, initiatives in the public space and a film critic website

    The network’s members are based in 9 Arab countries : Algeria - Egypt - Iraq - Lebanon - Morocco - Palestine - Sudan - Tunisia - United Arab Emirates
    NAAS is a sponsored organization of ArteEast.
