Here they are, the selected projects!



The projects for competition in the Development Fund &

Post Production Platform have been chosen!



For the 4th edition of MAFF Market Forum for Co-production of feature, short and documentary films in development we have received no less than 37 eligible projects from the Arabic countries and Sweden, and 28 eligible projects in post-production.


The Development Fund and The Post Production Platform are a way of promoting and supporting Arab filmmakers, but also encouraging cooperation between Arab and Nordic film industries.

However, in the final stages, the true standout films and projects were discussed and considered at length by the entire selection committee and festival director. And now MAFF is proud to announce the projects and films in competition for MAFF Development and Post-Production Fund!
