The Malmö Arab Film Festival is the biggest film festival in southern Sweden and welcomes actors, directors, and producers from all over the world. The aim of the festival is to bring Swedish and Arab culture closer together and enhance cultural exchange through visual storytelling. There will be workshops, exhibitions, celebrationsand seminars accompanying the film festival. Post Production Platform is a fund for feature-length narrative and documentary projects in post-production by directors of Arab nationality or origin. Post Production Platform is established with the intention of supporting and encouraging Arab filmmakers to professionalize the finalization of their film productions and promote it at an international film forum.

MAFF Market Forum presents five feature films in post-production at a two‐day event during Malmö Arab Film Festival, open exclusively to specially invited international sales agents, festival representatives, distributors and post-production companies. The initiative will be held as a part of MAFF Market Forum 2019.


The Post-Production Platform supports filmmakers by offering them assistance and coaching to complete their projects. We will hold closed screenings of 20 min excerpts from five new feature films (narrative and documentary) that are towards the end of the editing process or available for distribution. A panel of select industry experts provides immediate individual feedback. The films are screened in an intimate environment and are followed by questions from the audience. This is a chance to see clips from a film-in-the-making and provide valuable peer feedback to its director.

Representatives of the five selected projects will be invited to Malmo and pitch their project to a jury during MAFF Market Forum October 5-8, 2019. The jury will select several winning projects, which will be awarded post-production, and distribution prizes.
